Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an information processing unit which can adjust the height of an operator's eyes against a display member, so that it can be used in the best condition. SOLUTION: This information processing unit is provided with a main body side supporting part 15, where an arm supporting mechanism 3 to support a display member 2 at the front side of a unit body 1 is installed on the unit main body 1 so as to move freely in vertical direction; and a display side supporting part 16 where the display member 2 is installed rotatably in inside and outside reversal direction, and these are connected slidably. Therefore, the display member 2 can be stood almost vertically, arranged almost horizontally, or tilted to a random tilt angle by displacing it in vertical direction and by rotating it in the inside and outside reversal direction. Beside this, for example, the height in vertical direction of the display member 2 can be changed, with the display member 2 standing almost vertically by making the display side supporting part 16 slide against the main body side supporting part 15. By doing so, the eye height of an operator against the display member 2 can be adjusted, and it can be used in the best condition.

Will be described. This information processing apparatus is shown in FIG. 1 and FIG.
As shown, a pedestal 5 provided at the lower part of the apparatus main body 1
The apparatus main body 1 is placed in a state of standing on a desk. This
When the information processing device is not used in the state shown in FIG.
So that the display surface side of the display member 2 is above the pedestal portion 5.
Facing the front of the device body 1 located at
By pointing the back surface of the indicating member 2 toward the front of the apparatus body 1,
The display member 2 and the arm member 13
The display member 2 is in the housed state without protruding in the direction. others
The entire device is compact and compact,
Work space can be secured sufficiently. Also, in this state
Indicates that the display surface of the display member 2 faces the front of the apparatus body 1.
Therefore, the input display panel 12 is not exposed to the outside.
The input display panel 12 does not become dirty or scratched,
Can be protected well. When using this information processing apparatus,
First, as shown in FIG. 12, the display member 2 is
1 is moved diagonally downward on the front side and displayed.
The input display panel 1 is rotated by rotating the member 2 in the reverse direction.
2 is directed obliquely forward of the apparatus main body. At this time, FIG.
As shown in FIG.
Rotate downward around left and right hinge shafts 21 and 24
The left and right hinge shafts 21 and 24 rotate accordingly.
