    Viglen Omnino III

    I've just been having a look at the latest Viglen all in one machines and it appears they have moved to a new chassis that now comes with a 20" widescreen monitor!!

    I'm wondering if they actually spoke to any schools about this idea, as we certainly won't be able to buy any more of them now, as we simply don't have the space for such huge screens!

    What do others think about this?

    How on earth are you fitting them into your room? We have 3 rooms of 35 computers, as our largest class is currently 33 pupils so we have some spare machines. But we couldn't fit anything bigger than 17" screens in there.

    The worrying thing is he's just asked where the tape measure is.

    Ah, so not like most schools where space is more valuable than gold. I'm increasingly being asked to spec up machines which have next to no footprint on desks.

    Have you looked at the HP dc7800?

    Hmm I can't help feeling they could have made the screen bezel alot smaller this would have kept the width close to that of the previous model LP-571/LP-591 which has a really big bezel. Hopefully the manufacturer will release smaller screen sizes in the future.

    I'm slowly but surely moving towards thin client actually, but where fat clients are going to be replaced, that may be a lead contender.

    If only those made by people like Cadar were a little cheaper. Then you'd just need to get a low footprint desk mount arm and it'd be so much simpler.

    I had a viglen engineer here and he was saying that they are going to have problems at some point getting hold of parts for the old cases due to the manufacturer stopping making them. Is this true do you know? Seems how you sell the same chassis. We have a 3 year warranty on them, so any problems will be theirs to deal with, but it is an interested thing to wonder about though.
