I am planning a small MultiPoint Server implementation in a Dentist's practice with 6 stations interacting mainly with a common database. The most intensive processing done locally would be with Flash enabled web pages. Each thin client would connect over Ethernet to the server.
There seems a lot of choice with thin clients and I don't understand why if they are merely devices for joining KVMs with the server and hosting USB ports. What's the point of paying more than £100 for these ? An example range is at
Incidentally as an academic curiosity, even if the stations were editing videos, as long as RemoteFX is enabled then the server CPU would do all the processing wouldn't it ? My understanding is that the server GPU is not used at all in a non-virtual environment.

If you are looking for an ethernet connected thin client for windows multipoint server then the HP solution you are looking for is their T200 zero client.
This device performs usb to ethernet conversion including usb graphics and requires a driver to be installed on the multipoint server.
Wyse also make a similar device and it is the E02.
Alternaively you can use any rdp capable thin client and Axel make one specifically for windows multipoint server the M80 WMS.
I have the T200 and the M80 WMS.

That's very helpful - thanks.

I have progressed to buying some T200's but am unable to get them working. Please see my question in another thread.
