    New Hardware for ICT Labs

    Hi Guys,

    Looking for recommendations really from your experiences - I know theres a thread up already about machines, but looking to see whats to offer really.

    So far, i've got a few machines on evaluation which is :

    Viglen Genie Ultra Pro and the Ultra Small
    Lenovo M58 Eco - with All in one stand.

    Thinking about the HP7900 USD with All in one stand.

    Any other brands you can think of? Trying to stay away from dell as a lot of our GX270 systems are now failing due to a known problem which Dell fixed some, but never replaced all!

    Looking at roughly £500 Per Machine, and volumes of 90 > 120 machines

    Dual Core
    2Gb RAM
    160 + HDD
    Optical can be removed if needed.
    17" Screen and a All in one stand ideally..

    Any advice would be ace

    Ste

    We got rid of all our horrible SX270 hsssss

    We now have 1000 machines and they are GX620, GX745 and GX755 and they are all exellent hardly get problems.

    I know HP are good machines many members here use them.

    Hi Ste

    As a HP Preferred Gold Partner, we can offer the best pricing in the UK on HP products so if you'd like a quote on the DC7900s then please let me know and I'll get some details over to you.

    Kind regards

    Hi Steve

    Are you specifically looking at branded, if not I will supply a quotation based on the specification and if you want an eval unit to try out, I will have one sent out for you to check for compatability issues (there shouldn't be any!) and, if you want to open the box, check build quality.

    That pretty much describes our Media Suite:

    New Suite.

    All-in-one machines purchased from SCL Online. Nice and compact, with 17" screens, but take entirely standard components so you can specify whatever you like (and SCL are helpful when it comes to stuff like motherboards and whatnot). We had the optical drives removed too - it gives you room for a second harddrive in the case if you like.

    Do the All-in-One machines from SCL have adjustable height screens?

    Not an absolute requierment for our systems, but definately a nice to have.

    Hi Skunk

    Thank you for the enquiry. Quick answer - the SCL One PCs are not height adjustable.
