    ITX \ small form factor desktops?

    Anyone got any recommendations on these at the moment? Looking for some for our admin machines, basically just want something that can be tucked out the way so no more routing cables for towers etc.

    Needs Core2Duo minimum, doesn't need to be as beefy as our teaching machines so say an E7400 or similar. I've seen so far...

    - Stone, had a quote so comparing the price against other systems
    - Viglen... nice case and height adjustable stand but... build quality I'm not sure
    - Lenovo... heard about but not seen yet... unsure of price
    - HP... dc7900 slim but may be pricey?
    - Dell... nope as it's Dell
    - any others?

    We use HP all through our network (procurve switches etc). All our base units are HP. They vary between DC7600 up to DC7900. I cant really fault them. I really like the build quality. We are planning on ordering another 34 DC 7900s for a project over the summer.

    cheers

    Any chance you could PM me your spec \ rough price you're paying for the 7900s?

    Two options I would suggest for small form factor:

    Veriton L410 - 310

    Key Features:
    AMD Athlon X2 4400+ (2.3Ghz)
    Microsoft Windows Vista Business
    ATI X1250 Integrated Graphics (up to 256mb shared)
    2048mb (2*1024mb) RAM
    320gb HDD
    CD/DVD ReWriter
    8 USB2 Ports
    High Definition 5.1 Audio
    USB Keyboard and Mouse
    Gigabit Ethernet

    or the amazing Veriton N270 which is a pro version of the Aspire Revo, attaches to the back of monitor on the vesa mount. Should be around the 279 price with this kind of spec:

    Intel Atom N230 (1.6Ghz)
    Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
    nVidia GeForce 9400M DirectX 10 GPU
    2048mb RAM
    160gb Hard Drive
    4-in-1 Card Reader
    VGA, HDMI Out
    6 USB2.0 Ports
    802.11b/g Wireless Networking
    Fast Ethernet 10/100
    High Definition 7.1 Audio
    Audio In/Out
    eSata Connector
    USB Keyboard and Mouse

    Due in later this month.

    If you would like a quote or more info please PM me.

    Thanks

    Richard

    I've been looking for something similar but have yet to find a suitable alternative to the Acer L410 which ticks all the boxes on price, performance and features. Unless someone can suggest something better I'm looking at this at the end of term.
