[Quote] 5 Computers for the art block (Photoshop work)
Since I haven't tried this before...
I'm after 5 desktops with 19" or 20" TFTs for the Art Dept. Glass screens are preferred, but they need to have a non-reflective coat (lots of natural light), so we may go with conventional screens and threats of doom. It's sixth form territory, so they should behave.
Desired spec x5:
SATA disk - 80Gb+
Dedicated graphics card, not onboard - ie. Radeon HD2400/3450. Fanless/cooled by system fan desired.
Smallish desktop case.
Vista Business downgrade to XP.
No optical drives, no floppy.
7-in-1 card reader in a 3.5" bay (or whatever).
USB keyboard + mouse.
Vendor wise, I like Lenovo, don't mind Dell, and don't mind HP depending on where they sourced their motherboards from this year. I'm not interested in Vigilen, Acer, RM or Edge10.
