    NETBOOK as THIN CLIENT? Opinions and Comments please...

    Re: NETBOOK as THIN CLIENT? Opinions and Comments please...

    Could be a good alternative especially if you where planning on using the thin client for accessing a virtual desktop. The thin client does not come with a Windows OS so you would need a VDA license. Since the NetBook includes the OS license, you wouldn't need VDA, at least that is my understanding.

      Screen resolution might be an issue -- maybe the netbook could drive a decent size monitor off its VGA port (if it has one).

        Could be a good option in adding another layer to the hardware lifecycle policy.
        you could use Windows TPC http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/windo...on/thinpc.aspx
        Or any other 3rd party product to take advantage of achieving decent performance and user experience on ageing hardware.
