Last week I posted about these $350 All-In-One check in computers that were selling on Amazon. What a great price. All you need to do is plug in a printer and a scanner and you’re ready to go.

So, I ordered two and got them in today. I spent a few hours this afternoon getting acquainted. It is a pretty low-powered machine, but I think it’s going to work fine for check-in. I’m excited to get them installed. I just checked and Amazon seems to still have 4 or 5 left, so I’d take advantage of it if you can. If they still have any by next week, I might even buy another one. 🙂

So, my friend Rob from Keller, TX bought one too and he saved me a bunch of time telling me how to calibrate for Fellowship one Check in as well as where to get a mounting plate (I’m hanging these suckers on the wall).

So, here’s what he shared:

Screen Calibration
Go to display properties and change the resolution to 800×600 (When I did it, I noticed something still wasn’t right). Then click on “advanced” and change the DPI setting to 96 (this was what I was missing. Once I did this, it all looked great).

Built in Software
Just in case you’re wondering, the machine has a lot of extra built in software that enhances the touch screen functionality. A lot of it is junk, but there’s a great little built in “soft” keyboard that is great. Once you get it all set up, you don’t need a keyboard wired into this thing.

Wall Mount
So you want to mount this to the wall? I couldn’t find out how to do this, but Rob figured it out. You have to buy this plate which you will attach to the back of the machine. Then you can use any VESA75 wall mount to connect the computer to the wall. I bought this wall mount off of Amazon.

Hopefully I’ll have these things installed in a week or two, so I’ll be able to give a full review then.
