    opinions on this kit please...

    we are looking at something like the attached for our new ICT suites
    this is from a flyer from www.sccex.com

    - has anyone seen anything like this anywhere else (doubt if price includes bracket though ) , but looks pretty good to me , keyboard can be put under TFT to give workspace if required!
    (think we'll not do wireless mouse and kb though!!)


    Any thoughts/ experience of this firm?

    I'm guessing that it doesn't include the monitor and stand in that price. When I looked at the HP AIO setup you had to buy the base unit, monitor and stand seperately. If you want an AIO like shown there try the Dell USFF there great, you can even screw them to the tables!! Not that we've done that.

    I recommend give someone like XMA a call to get a demo system to check how sturdy they are. That was my other problem with them, compared to the dells the stands were a bit flimsy.

    Another vote for the Dells here. You can get the Optiplex 755 in an AIO USFF

    Vista Business has downgrade rights to XP Pro, and from what I remember all HP products have XP drivers available, might be worth checking their website though.

    Another vote for the Dells from me too! I've bought about a dozen before and they are very sturdy and neat - handle on the top picks the lot up - very handy (excuse the pun) for cleaning under/around etc.

    We have 70 Viglen Omninos here, but it was a close call between them, the RM One and some by Cybernet Europe (http://www.cyberneteurope.com). The prices are all pretty similar, except for the cybernet ones which are a little more expensive due to them being a smaller company and the machines being more compact than the others.

    The only problem with the Viglen's is that the power button is susceptible to getting jammed and the cables are difficult to plug in and take out.

    I have purchased things from SCC in the last few months and overall I've been impressed. I was given an account manager who I could contact almost every time I called. If they weren't there they called back as soon as they could - I dont think I've waited longer than a day for a respsonse. Delivery has been good too and I found the prices decent.

    We've got about 150 of the Dell USFF with Optiplex 745's - been very, very few problems with them
    Not the best looking but small and tidy

    Do you have the newer model Omnino's or the very first ones?

    I would also recommend the Dell Optiplex machines. They seem to be well built and take up hardly any space.

    My advise is don't do it, they're shit. these AIO solutions are not particularly space saving as they add so much depth to the monitor that you'd be better off buying an USFF pc and sitting it next to the monitor or sitting the monitor on top of the pc, if it'll fit. Buy the dell optiplex USFF pc by all means, it's very stylish and compact but i'd steer clear of AIO's - unless it's the vaio desktop or an imac. ;0)

    thanks to everyone for replies - I am arranging with XMA to have Dell and HP machines loaned for evaluation, and will share my opinion of them then!

    The new ones (they were bought during the summer).
