Does anyone else know who makes these style thin clents please - Dell Wyse X50m | Dell Wyse
From a manufacturers point of view, due to scales of volume/manufacturing etc - it is very hard (impossible?) to make one that offers a price advantage
against a cheap (PC) laptop, so not much motivation to develop in this direction...
The companies who maybe could - are not motivated either - as they will be the main laptop sellers - so not much motivation to canibalise their existing market
Maybe a generic Android tablet will offer a solution here ?
We wish to have a proper thin client not a tablet or a cheap laptop. We want thinclients. Laptops are a real pain when pushing software out to them.

These are pretty awesome: Ultra-thin clients (Also... General Dynamics is too Close to Massive Dynamic not to be cool!!!)
Or HP make some: HP 4410t Mobile Thin Client Large Enterprise Business
Or you could use Chrome Books - Citrix Receiver has been available since day 1 and there is software available for RDP.
It probably comes down to money, time and what technology you want to use.

Please keep us posted - it will be interesting to see how you get on with a dedicated laptop TC, especially costwise....
The device will still need Windows Updates or whatever. If its Windows it will need AV.and no need to ever push software out to it
