    AIO PC's suitable for a primary school

    Im looking at what's out there to replace the pcs in the suite that we lost in the fire. AIOs would be ideal as we are limited on space and we previously had dell inspirons that weren't exactly all in one but the base unit and monitor sat on a frame.

    The ones I keep coming across now are sexy looking but not sure how practical they are in a primary school environment.

    Anyone got/seen suitable ones?

    The Dell AIO's have been replaced with a much shinier looking version, a little pricier, but they're good PC's. Optiplex 790 SF Lenovo do an all in one, but I'd leave them well alone, the power buttons keep coming unseated and power sockets are loose, kids just touch them and the power goes off. Had engineers to look at them a few times, but they just said even a replacement model will be the same.

    Viglen do the Omnino 4, and soon will be doing the Integra. Ergo do one too. Those are all true AIOs though, rather than USFF with a bracket.

    I used the Omnino 2's in my last school - they worked well, and the company was great at support.

    You'll find that if you bought some HP SFF (Small Form Factor) desktops (for example), turn them on their side and place an LED screen in front, this will be just as good as an AIO and you'll get more bang for your buck.

    Stone do all in Ones but I have never used them but other desktops are second to none - Perhaps worth looking at something like the Zero Clients - Its what I'm looking at for the PE suite which doesn't have much space. You have one physical machine which can connect up to 15 Zero clients I believe.
