Advice needed Best Thin Client for local apps
I built a small PC, but it's powerful enough to use with DRBL, not
just thin clients. Here were the parts:
It seems to be pretty darned speedy, doesn't use a lot of power, and
the case fan is fairly quiet. Once you add shipping, it's right around
$200, and you have to put it together, but buying parts means you can
get a lot of computer power fairly cheaply. I mean, throw a hard drive
and optical drive in this thing and it's more powerful than the model
my district buys and considerably cheaper.
I wish someone made a cheap little case for people who didn't intend
to put in hard drives and optical drives, but once you get to
MicroATX, they leave enough room for a whole computer.
