"In particular, the plug-in for Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011 enables IT professionals to manage embedded devices in a similar manner to PCs and servers through a single integrated solution, simplifying embedded device integration and management." The HP t610 is Remote FX certified, and both the HP t510 and HPt610 are optimized for compatibility with top virtualization software, including Citrix Xen App and Xen Desktop, Microsoft RDP 7 and VMware View.
Pricing and availability The HP t510 Thin Client has a starting price of 9 and the HP t610 Flexible Series Thin Client has a starting price of 9.
The HP t510 also features the VIA Eden X2 U4200 1 GHz dual-core CPU, the highest performing processor in its class.
"With these new, flexible thin clients, businesses can protect their data more effectively, and they get an exceptional user experience with better graphics and video performance," said Jeff Groudan, director, Marketing, Thin Clients, HP.
"We also made sure the t610 and t510 are easy to integrate and manage with a broad set of management tools." Built-in industry-first security The HP t610 is the industry's first thin client to feature both a BIOS (basic input/output system) that complies with the security recommendations of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and an on-board Trusted Platform Module that protects access to networks under the certification requirements of the Trusted Computing Group.
I've been spending some time looking into the HP thin client range, which offer a number of OS options, including Windows Embedded.
One of the main reasons for switching to thin clients would be the reduced management burden compared to fat desktops.
