Numeric, function, scan and enter keys are located closely together, allowing single-hand operation. Hard plastic key-caps give maximum tactile feel and response to the user. The combination of size, weight and design of the 6400, along with the advanced power of the AMD386 processor, gives your workforce maximum productivity.

DISPLAY MORE NEEDED DATA The 160x128 pixel screen on the 6400 lets you make the most of applications requiring the display of large amounts of sales or logistics information. A CGA (Color Graphics Adapter) graphics controller allows users to adjust the display to their application or visibility needs from 5 lines/10 characters to 16 lines/32 characters.
