When In Croatia, A Končar D’22M Computer May Be Waiting For You In Your Hotel Room

Končar D’22M Computer

Source of information:

This is going to be one of my rare tech-geek type posts. I subscribe to a number of computer/technology type sites, but am not obsessed with the new toys that are coming out, sometimes daily. I have more important things to do than be concerned with the all the latest games, gadgets and basically high-priced toys that are flooding the market, relentlessly. However, this one is Croatia related. Until just about 2 years ago I didn't even know that we had our own brands of Computers/Laptops and related I.T. equipment, and how widespread their use was in Croatia. The Končar company website can be found at:

Anyway, this is just a little piece that came out last week concerning the new Končar D’22M computer, and how it is hoped that it will be found in hotel rooms and as well as homes, all across Croatia. I'm not going to bore you with all the details and specifications,(you will have to learn Croatian and check out the accompanying links), but it seems like a worthwhile enterprise and promising venture to take. I hope they succeed in their endeavors. Here is a list of the companies, educational institutions and government offices that currently use KONČAR computers and information technology.
