Vandal proof workstations?
Fed up with badges, trim and anything else removable being taken from machines, we are looking for something a little more vandal proof. We have looked at some modified shuttles which look pretty good, but does anyone here have any other suggestions?

We bought Dell 755's in the end - though the HP SFF look pretty good too. Perhaps you should have a word with Vik at Rushden for the ultimate solution - I was very taken with his bespoke made cases.

In the new building, we'll be going down the path of our parent academies...PCs in cages, only access to a USB extender except for servicing..

As above the optiplex 755s are pretty robust
to be fair, I don't think you'll ever find something totally vandal proof - it'd be nice to think that the classroom staff could keep an eye on them.....

We use tall cupboards in rooms with PCs inside them, KVM extension cables and active USB extenders give access to the PCs from the desks. Pretty vandal proof really

this impenetrable case is most of our school site.
we went with another type once, and regretted it.

only problem I had with the cases you use is the power, switch mechanism tends to jam

Ah, we havent noticed that so much here - It may have happened, but I dont specifically remember incidents of this happening.
biggest problems we had seen before, was drive plates smashed in and ram stole, with metal plates behind the plastic here, that was less of an issue.
