N400: The N-series entry-level device, the N400, is the thin client of choice for task workers andthose workers with light multimedia needs. The N400 combines the proven horsepower of the 3rd-generationNumo™ 3 SoC with the deep understanding of desktop virtualization to support full HDX

sessions up to HD780p and uses server-side rendering for video and flash video playback.

N500: The workhorse of the N-series family of thin clients, the N500, provides the full multimediacapabilities demanded by knowledge workers and in other demanding environments. The N500incorporates full clientside rendering for efficient playback of video content, and uses server-siderendering for flash video playback. It displays content up to full HD at 1080p. The N500 also providesoptions for dual display and wireless connectivity (not available with the N400). Also powered by theNumo™ 3 SoC, the N500 sets the new standard for price/performance in the thin client market with itsrich set of features and capabilities.
