    Small footprint workstations

    I'm trying to gat a quart into a pint pot. Any recommendations on workstations that don't take up lots of desk? Something that bolts to the back of the monitor would be good.

    I can highly reccomend the Dell Optiples 755 USFF with AIO 17" TFT. See these threads on similar topics.

    all-in-one computers

    opinions on this kit please...

    Previous thread:

    all-in-one computers

    To repeat what I said in that thread:

    I've just got a quote from European Electronique for the HP Compaq Business Desktop DC7800 (Core 2 Duo E6550, 2GB (2x1GB) RAM, 80GB SATA HDD, DVD, Vista Business, 3 Year warranty) for £410 + VAT. This screws on the back of the HP L1908wi 19" TFT Monitor (£143.21 + VAT) and stand (£43 + VAT) to make an all-in-one style PC. So around £600 + VAT. Not bad, but I think we'll still be going for the Mac Mini and some cheap screens and a tube of Araldite for that all-in-one effect.

    Also, the SCL all-in-one chasis looked good - takes a standard Micro-ATX motherboard, so you can specify the features you want in your PC and upgrade later if needed.

    Last time we looked at Dell USFF they came with a power brick almost as big as the base unit - has this changed? That was a real show stopper for us!

    Viglen do a "bolt on the back" PC which just use a standard power lead and work very well (we have quite a lot of them)

    If you want really small then the Viglen MPC-L is fantastic and just £99!

    I've used the Shuttle cube PCs before and stand the TFTs on top of them or wall mount them according to age of user / school setup etc, the benifit is you dont need new monitors in 5 years time when you changeh the PC and they no longer fit the screens.
