PIPO X3 Windows Mini PC / PoS Integrates a Thermal Printer

Orange Pi Development Boards

PIPO has launched several Windows 10 mini PC with a built-in touchscreen display suitable for PoS (Point of Sale) applications. You just had to connect your own thermal printer and/or barcode scanner.

It now appears the company has taken their Atom x5 based PIPO X12 model and redesigned a case around the main board to integrate a thermal printer to print receipts. Meet PIPO X3.

PIPO X3 ports

The mini PC runs Windows 10, and ships with a power supply, and a user manual. The RS-232 can be used with a barcode reader, but I’m not sure what the RJ11 port is for unless the PoS needs the ability to fax documents, or Internet dial-up is still a thing in some parts of the world.

I first found PIPO X3  for $199.99 including shipping on GearBest [Update: Coupon GBCNX3 brings that down to $189.99], but you’ll also find it on Aliexpress for as low as $154.80 plus shipping. Note that according to at least one Aliexpress seller, PIPO X3 runs both Windows 10 and Android 5.1, but they did not provide any photos or screenshots to confirm the claim.

RJ11 port is probably for a Cash drawer

The printer will be in the way for a cashier trying to use his left hand. Not very ergonomic.
