    Recommend an all in one system please

    Iíve been looking at all in one systems for a new ict suite and having problems deciding on the spec. SCL have a number of different systems SCL Online - Systems > All In One which ones would be capable of running Vista or Windows 7? Itís for a primary school so donít need anything too powerful but need the all in one for the space saving.

    We've got some Viglen Onimo 3s which we're happy with, but they're on the expensive side.

    We've also got some ultra slim HP DC7800s that mount on the back of a special monitor stand, very need and cheaper then the Viglen. Stone have now launched a similar ITX based model. They also do a laptop based AIO, which I wouldn't both with.

    All In One

    Hi Jobos - all the SCL One PCs can be used with Vista / 7. There are lead times on these particular units due to their popularity. Perhaps you could PM or email me for more details and I could send a quotation including the operating system of your choice, delivery, etc so you have the complete picture and pricing.

    I can recommend SCL:

    New Suite.

    Then again, I can also recommend buying second-hand RM One desktops and upgrading the motherboards.

    I can recommend SCL as well. The best answer is to give them a ring, they are very helpful and will do their best to get you the right solution for your needs.

    I have heard pretty good things about the stone all in ones. There is a member on here who has an IT Room with them in.

    Great - absolute bargains, the lot of them. 18, minus the harddrives, are now acting as Edubuntu thin clients. Said harddrives are shortly going to be installed in our media suite machines as second drives, to be joined together (somehow, the details are a tad hazy right at the moment) into a distributed RAID system. Two are in the music room, with a bit of a RAM upgrade, ready to be used to connect to a couple of MIDI keyboards. One is in a teacher's office, replacing a shiny new Dell machine that I've re-directed elsewhere. The rest (minus a couple with duff screens, but we knew about those) are aiming to be thin clients in the prep school classrooms, along with a couple of random laptops that I can't for the life of remember obtaining.

    The nice thing about the Viglen Omnino is that they're basically a standard PC built onto the back of a monitor so if something fails, there are no weird components to have to replace.

    We've got some of the 7800 ultra small machines; they do look good (unlike the HP web site which does not ...))

    Hi,

    Ergo AS1, goes upto Core 2 Duo 2.8Ghz / 4Gb Ram / 320Gb hd / onboard graphics (intel gm45) / hdmi out / vga out / eSata / card reader / firewire / 19" widescreen tft (touchscreen optional).

    It is basically a laptop attached to the back of a tft screen, so ok if something goes wrong and you don't have an onsite agreement it may be harder to fix. However it does mean that the footprint is very small, they are VERY quite and they claim the running costs are very low. I would certainly recommend including them in any demos or trials you enter into.

    I can recomend the HP dc7800 USFF (Ultra Small Form Factor) with the Hp L1908wi monitor. The computer attaches to the back and is as good as an all-in-one but with the easier maintenance of separate devices. It also comes with a 3yr warranty as standard.
