    All in one PC with built in TFT

    Also, look at the HP and Dell systems that allow you to mount the PC on the TFT stand. These are possibly a better bet since parts will be easier to get. I would go for the HP

    The RM One machines that were lent to us for the conference by RM seemed well built but ran quite hot and left very little room for expansion. I thought that the glass screen was a nice touch... all the TFTs I buy for classroom use are glass-fronted to stop stray compasses and scissors, etc.

    Something else to consider is what happened to Dos_Box... he had a suite of all-in-one machines from AJP a year or so ago. One evening, some clever crims broke in, unplugged all the kettle leads and network cables and carried them out with their in-built carry handles!

    We used to use the AJP NeoPCs' until they were stolen.

    They were good machines, but like most small footprint PC's, only the RAM and HD were upgradable. They were very reliable and were RIS complient and WOL worked too. I recommend them.

    Oh, and they had a handle in the back of the screen so you could carry them around. Bonus!!

    @Dos Box,
    Soory to hear about the sturdy carry handles. I like the look of those but the price on the page would i guess definately put SLT right off.

    @Ric do you have a link or more info on those HPs or Dell you mentioned?

    You could also have a look at the Vglen Omnino range as well.

    The Dell GX520 sf is on offer at the moment to get the "free" stand and 17" tft.

    We have used the SX270s and will probably go for the GX520s this year ... we have eval models coming in over the next few weeks.

    The HPs are the DC range - definately NOT the DXs, they're too heavy to mount and overheat according to HP and Norphy

    The Dell GX520 celeron model was coming in at £450 ish last week - those monitors are the best part of £200

    Hope you're not forgetting the new Apple iMacs! Remember they'll dual boot Windows XP and for education the 20" version comes in at just under a grand!

    Overheat? I said nothing about that

    Although they will need some space to the left and to the right of them so the air intake/outputs are not blocked.

    Re: All in one PC with built in TFT

    HP are also offering the cost of the TFT back when you buy their all in one solution saving you £139 per system. The offer is only applicable when you buy the following:

    HP DC7600 Ultra Slim Desktop (Part Codes - EC842ET or EC953ET)
    Integrated Works Centre Stand (DL641AT)
    HP L1706 17" TFT (PX849AT)

    I have so far had a quote for £638.80 per system but the after you claim the £139 back it brings the cost down to a nice £499.80

    If you are going to buy more that 20 you must get your supplier to give you seperate invoices because in HP's Terms and Conditions you can only claim back upto 20 at a time.

    We bought 30 P4 2.8ghz GX520 SFF system units from DELL in December 2005; so far we have had 2 PSUs go bang and 3 system boards replaced, not including the DOA system board the engineer brought with him on one occasion. On both occasions when the PSUs failed there was a member of staff nearby, excluding the possibility that the power select switch had been interfered with.

    DELL assure me there is not a 'generic' problem with these units.....
