What Thin Client box to buy?
I am looking for 25 or so thin client boxes that can PXE boot and load a 2x machine image..
Can anybody recommend a decent box - it would be nice if it had a bit of processing power, and sound capability.. but price is important..

They PXE boot Slax fine. They don't quite manage YouTube video on our plain Server 2008 R2 TS machine (both video and sound quality are actually quite good, the sound is just not quite synced up with the video), but 2X might be able to handle it. If not (if it's just a case of the hardware not quite being up to it), spending another £100 to stick a new motherboard, CPU, RAM bundle in each machine is probably still the cheapest option, bearing in mind you get the screen in with the bundle.
