Thin Clients for Primary School
We're looking to replace some computers in our primary school and are considering replacing them with thin clients. They will be additional computers in classrooms and aren't connected to IWBs or other peripherals. One of the reasons for looking at thin clients is for a more 'instant-on' setup where they could be turned on and students logged on in <1 minute. We would need to be able to deliver a good user experience, including the playback of full screen flash video (YouTube etc).
We'd like to use standard RDS on 2008 R2 servers at the back-end. Would a couple of desktops with latest gen i7's, 12GB RAM and a few SSDs in RAID1 or 10 cope?
Are there any particular make/models of thin client that you'd recommend for this sort of use that we could look into further and get some demo units of?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I should have said, initially we'd be looking to use this setup for around 20 thin clients.
