Techopedia explains Blade PC
A blade PC looks like a blade, and although it is a small, thin device, it contains a wide array of features. It is similar in concept to a blade server except that while a blade server caters to many thin clients, a blade PC caters to only one client at a time. A blade PC is connected with its thin client which contains a display unit or device, mouse or a keyboard through a cable. Blade PCs have limited capabilities in graphics and multimedia because the audio and video are not synchronized.The main advantages of a blade PC are enhanced data security, lower total cost of ownership and higher tolerance for disasters and other serious issues.
