Re: [K12OSN] Please comment on this hardware

1280 x 1024 would be quite nice. We've got 15" monitors at 800 x 600 at the moment. I'd love to move up to 17" at 1280 x 1024.

So, about $100 for the motherboard with the CPU and $65 for the little boxes. How much can you build
a terminal for with keyboard, mouse, and all the fixin's?

And, while we're at it, anybody got a super low price on LCD screens?


P.S. We're running a raffle to outfit my poor, pathetic lab. I'm begging my students to get them to sell as many tickets as possible so
we can at least upgrade to a better server.

I use many of the darned things. The small boxes are available,
but expensive: $65 instead o $20 for a mini tower. max resolution is
really 1280x1024, because there is only 3MB cideo memory. If you can go 8
bit color, you can get 1600x1200. all in all, they are just fine, provided
you set software cursor control.
12V power supply - makes you think, hugh? Well, i tried one of
them in my van, with a 12V flat panel: great gps and music platform,
although for the time being it is great with win2k and rather sucky with
linux - have to get good sound as opposed to the abortion now available
and need to find a decent replacement for streetatlas.
good luck, julius

What's the maximum resolution/color depth for these things? Also, does
someone make a teeny box to put them in?

As a terminal, the 500MHz (Eden) version works fine.  It is slightly
and fanless.  Sound, video and LAn are all supported.   I'm running

a 50w fanless power supply with no problems.

I believe there are a couple other people on this list using the
boards as well.

Regarding powers supplies, you will need a big one if you plan to have
one: 6 x 50 = 300 for the WS + 350 (400?) for the server = 650W .
Alternately and probably cheaper you could just use two supplies, one
for the
WS and one for the server.

Greetings, please comment on this hardware,
The VIA EPIA Mini-ITX mainboard with 800mhz
This board has onboard video, LAN and audio...
CPU: 800mhz VIA C3 E-series (socket 370)
$118 US
These boards are 170mm x 170mm, nice.
Cheap terminal gear.
Any experience ? I would like to build a portable say 6 workstation
all contained in on box. Just add monitors keyboards and mice and an
internet connection. The K12LTSP server would also be in this box
but does
not count as a workstation. Small switch inside. Entirely self
Please comment on wireless mice and keyboards also...Can you get 10
keyboard/mice to work on seperate channels ?
Thanks for the time,
