Re: [school-discuss] Why is thin client hardware so expensive?
This may just be personal experience, but I found that low cost hardware
often does not support PXE, making any low cost option more difficult to
deal with (CD boots, etc.) and therefore not attractive to resellers.
I was looking into offering an LCD all-in-one thin client based on
Transmeta chips, but am still looking for one that supports PXE.

With the $100 lap top underway, I can't help but think that $25-$50
(less monitor) fan-less thin client ought to be possible. Perhaps not
profitable, but with enough buy-in, might not a not-for-profit producer
be a solution?
I realize that used low-end PCs can be had for as little as
$25-to-free. But it sure seems like fan-less, small footprint systems
would be worth some effort to make available.
