Running a powerful quad-core processor and a full Windows 10 operating system, the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet™ is the most capable device built by Juniper Systems yet. As we’ve said before, since it runs on full Windows, the Mesa 2 is robust enough to even be used as your desktop PC, making it especially easy to transition from collecting data in the field, to further utilizing your data back in the office.

Today you’ll find out how easy it is to start using your Mesa 2 as a desktop computer, beginning with the simplest way:

M2 Dock

The easiest method is by using our M2 Dock accessory to connect the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet to your monitor using the included HDMI port or a USB/HDMI adapter. The M2 Dock also includes three USB ports, allowing you to easily connect a keyboard and mouse as well. After that, all you have to do is place your Mesa 2 into the M2 Dock to start using it as your personal computer.

Another—albeit less convenient—option to connect your Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet to a monitor is a universal dock, such as this one. While you may need to manually attach more cables each time you connect the Mesa 2 to your monitor, this is still a viable option.

Software Programs

A third method that will allow the Mesa 2 to work as a desktop PC is the use of certain software programs that provide remote access and control to the Mesa 2, viewed on a separate monitor. A few utilities you could try include:

So there you have three different options that allow you to take advantage of the Mesa 2’s ability to act as both a rugged Windows 10 tablet for collecting data in tough environments, as well as a personal computer in the office.

  1. Hi blog.junipersys.com,

    We represent a large number of clients who operate in dozens of online markets including shopping, fashion, tech, DIY, finance, crafts, travel, cars, food and more. We are currently looking for guest or sponsored post opportunities on their behalf. Is this something you would be interested in?

    If so, would you mind telling me how much you normally charge for a post on your site?

    Usually, we would write the article on a topic related to both yours and our clients websites, at around 300-500 words long with one link to our clients website contained within. However, we’re more than happy if you would prefer to write the article yourself, as well as changing the word count to whatever suits you best.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas

  2. Hello

    I came across http://blog.junipersys.com/ and would like to inquire about publishing a guest post, paid post advertisement on it.

    I can provide high quality articles related to previously-published posts and would like to know:

    1. What is the process to submit a post to your website?

    2. Is it free of cost or are there any charges? (and if so – how much?)

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Regards.
