The Omnino HS chassis is still manufactured and current although Viglen aren't purchasing them anymore. Spares can still be obtained although Viglen should have a good stockpile of spares anyway. The main items are PSU, inverter, ad board and LCD panels.

We've got some of the very first Omnino machines and we get through inverter boards like there's no tomorrow. Anyone else had problems?

Viglen do consult with UK Educational bodies. The Omnino III itself was chosen as it fits the requirements best, you can see the same model wearing different manufacturers badges elsewhere on the web.

Incidentally, if you upgrade to the larger of the two screen sizes, it costs about £150. Viglen send over an engineer who fits a new faceplate to the existing screen, which has a narrower black border. It's still the same screen!

We found the Omnino v1 very reliable after settling in. The Omnino v2 did suffer from problems with the inverter board, also some models had problems with the PSU, the netcard, and the power button keeps getting stuck.

Our rooms are cramped, like a lot of schools. This comes from having not enough classrooms for the number of kids we've got. It also comes from having to change computer rooms from 20 machines to 35 machines to stop the need for sharing.

Cramped For Room !
At lboro uni we had real room and desk space issues and we purchased the secure desks from ergo. I think they do them from 750mm wide although we took 900mm I think it was in the end as we got an extra 10 student spaces from 30 previously up to 40.
Just taken a look at the ergo website and looks like they are also in the all in one pc market. This could be another alternative for space saving ?
Hope this helps.
