Howdy All,

Just thought I'd throw this out. Maybe most have seen/heard of
these ?This rig looks like it would be the cat's meow for a school
scenario. All three models are PoE compliant,This would be a God's send
in itself, if you are like our school with "not enough power outlets" in
each room.All would have to be done is have all PoE compliant
switches,which can be had for about $310 for a 24 port with gig
uplinks.Get rid of all of the power cord mumbo-jumbo/spaghetti.
Think of it ,no knobs or edges or  buttons for the kids to tear off :)
The only trick would be to see if the AMD Alchemy video would be able to
work? I talked to a distributor for these and he told me they are now
available in the states. They were having troubles with the voltages,on
the prototypes brought here to the states, as these are manufactured in
the Middle East. He told me that his company fitted these ,several
hundred into a new corporate offices,and works very well. But they were
RDP'ing to WTS server.
they only require 5w of power which would be sweet as well. 0 noise &
probably almost 0 heat output.
It's worth taking a look at it, when you have time.


Take Care,

Barry Cisna
