    Viglen Omnino 4? Similar?

    We're looking at replacements for desktop PCs here, namely all in one/USDT type machines.

    We currently have HP dc7800 machines everywhere and they have a significant issue where cables get unplugged etc... So we're looking at more of a hardy replacement.

    I've had experience of the older Omnino II machines, and they had a couple of design flaws, these newer Omnino 4 machines seem to be better designed - using standard monitors, using cable management etc...

    Has anyone had any experience with them?

    Also, other than the RM One machines, are there any other similar devices out there?

    Stone do one, I think they're launching a new version at BETT. The cable access is very fiddly on the current version, but apart from that they seem fine. We've got about 40 of them. One really nice feature is you need to hold down a button to move the screen up and down. This makes it too much effort for our students to bother messing about with them.

    EDIT: I've not looked into them properly, but Novatech also do one.

    Does this have the cabling locked away so it can't be unplugged/fiddled with?

    Stone A-I-O also comes with (as standard) their 5 year on site NBD warranty, at the time Viglen couldn't compete on price.

    Here is some info on the stand - Documentation would seem power and LAN aren't locked away, although you may be able to run these into the tray along with the mouse / keyboard if space allowed. Haven't seen one hands on to confirm.

    We've started using the Viglen Genue Ultra Small computers with AIO monitor/stand. They have a cover over the cables secured with a screw to stop anybody unplugging things. I've not had any helpdesk calls related to unplugged cables from these computers.

    The price for the i3 version is pretty reasonable (with 19" monitor).
