    Minimum Spec for 'thick client' PC's


    What minimum specs are we running for our 'thick client' PC's?

    We are using a Citrix Xen Desktop version 5 solution and up until now have been running HP D530 PC's which are:

    P4 3ghz HT CPU, 512Mb Ram, 7200rpm 40gb HDD, Win XP.

    Are going to be stepping down to make some use out of some even older PC's which are:

    HP D510, P4 2.4ghz, 512Mb Ram, 7200rpm 40gb HDD, Win XP.

    Have noticed log in time is a little longer but no difference when in full session. In theory you can run VDI on a pentium 2 but I wouldnt like to see this in action!

    Be interesting to see just how low a spec others have managed to get it to run properly on?

    The desktop reciever will run reasonably well on almost anything that runs an OS, with decent video RAM to support a reasonable resolution.

    Runs fine on an iPad using the Citrix Reciever for iPad and is supported for a number of XP embedded devices too. Would be interested to know how many folk have sweated their oldest kit as cheap end points?!
