HP Compaq t5730w Thin Client

 

Designed for use with server-based desktops such as Terminal Services, Citrix and VMware View, HP's t5730w is an excellent mid-range device suitable for most office applications.

Built-in Wi-Fi makes the very easy to deploy in a home office and other remote locations, Remarkably small and quiet, Microsoft TS CAL included in price

Poor multimedia handling unless you buy additional software, Third-party management tools may be needed to patch and manage this device's Windows software

Consumer review by: IT (newegg.com)

Does NOT have XPe installed

 

It really would have been a great unit if it had an OS installed, or even flash installed so that an OS can be installed.

Seemed like a great price for the product compared to similar units from Wyse with less specs

The product clearly states w/ Windows XPe Installed, but when the unit arrived, it had not flash drive and no OS installed at all. It appears there are two versions of this unit and the one described is not the one that NewEgg sent

Product Specifications

The powerful AMD processor, high-end graphics, slim design, expanded peripheral support, HP Sygate Security Agent and local application support make the t5730 an excellent choice. With an AMD Sempron processor and ATI graphics, you get all the processing power you need for a great server-based computing experience, whether running general office applications or your specific line of business software on a terminal server.
