I've been looking at thin client hardware today. For what they are, they just seem obscenely expensive. I've been quoted about £220 for an HP Compaq model (The t5170) and for an extra £60 you could get an entirely new PC. I've also seen a Wyse model for about £100 which seems more reasonable and Neoware ones for about £130. On the opposite end of the scale I was looking at Sun ones for kicks and the one with the integrated 17" TFT was something like £1200!
What do people here use? Recycling existing PCs for this project isn't an option as all the ones which are in line for recycling are all massive and really grotty looking. This room is supposed to be a "flagship" room so it looks to look slinky and the stations can't take up a lot of room as space is very limited. Even shuttles would be too big.
