Re: [K12OSN] new Thin-client recommendations for budget


For the thin-client they claim good performance for graphic and video replay on the thin-client. However NECs thin-client solutions Virtual PC Center (VPCC) is based on VMware and Windows. The thin-client itself might run with K12 Linux terminal server.

Hi guys,

Long time since I've been in here, but as usual things are humming along
as we are in our 8th year of running Linux terminals...etc.  I'm looking
to buy a new lab this year with more powerful thin-clients for running
some apps locally.  I like the idea of some of the Atom based
thin-clients.  I'm hoping to keep the price under $250 per machine and I'm
looking for any recommendations that folks may have or have heard
about...etc.  Also...has anyone tried the new MSI Wind desktop as a
thin-client?  Those have the really small form factor....atom....and
barebones are about $139 at newegg....and $25 or so for RAM and you have
what might be an awesome thin-client.  All ideas welcome.
