As we have seen in previous Tech Blog posts, our Aptio® and AMIBIOS® are everywhere – and they often show up in some interesting and unusual places!
Because Aptio UEFI Firmware – and its legacy BIOS predecessor, AMIBIOS – are installed on all types of systems across the globe, including servers, desktops, notebooks, tablets and embedded systems such as those driving digital signage systems, sometimes a system reboot or fault will provide unique photo opportunities.
We are always amused when eagle-eyed computer enthusiasts share photos on social media platforms when they find Aptio and AMIBIOS in unusual places! Here are a few of the latest pictures we have found, showing some of the interesting places Aptio and AMIBIOS have recently been seen:
