Thin Client specs & costs

These are nice looking, quiet, quick machines for use as a light linux workstation or thin client to a terminal server. I’ve been using ThinStation with them with great success. Booting from the network is the way to go if you can, but CF works pretty well too. Of course these specs do not include monitor, keyboard, and mouse. The machines are so cheap you can splurge on those things and have happy users.
