Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

So Wyse have recently announced the G90, and although some might argue that a 1Ghz AMD would trump a 1.2Ghz Via, what I find somewhat surprising is that the Mobile Thin Client's they have on display for use here at the iForum are very neat and tidy 12.1" wide screens with a tiny footprint - and these are also using the 1.2Ghz processor.Wyse Mobile Thin Client

The reason why I discovered this was not because I was reading the specs sheet, but more because I thought it was so warm to the touch, I would imagine that this would be somewhat uncomfortable on your lap after a certain amount of time?

Still, I have to give kudos to Wyse for a very neat form factor with a very nice screen, a very nice Thin Client notebook at only 1.7Kg - perfect for road warriors.

Powerful" thin client supports dual displays, expansion

Oct. 22, 2007
Wyse has announced what it is touting as "the industry's most powerful thin computer." The G90, based on a 1.2GHz Via C7 processor, includes dual-monitor support and runs Windows XP Embedded, according to the company.

In many ways, the G90 blurs the lines between what is expected in a thin client and a standard desktop PC. This is because the device includes such features as a PCI expansion slot, plus bays that can accept both an optional CD/DVD-ROM drive and a hard drive.
Wyse has for some months promoted dual-monitor support in its thin clients. The V-Class L (formerly V Class Dual-Video) devices, for example, support dual screens via a special cable that splits the devices' DVI-I port into one DVI-D port and one VGA port.
According to the company, the new G90 continues that capability, but can support up to four additional displays (for a total of six) when a third-party graphics adapter is installed in its PCI slot. The unit's resident capabilities are supplied by Via's UniChrome Pro AGP graphics with MPEG-2 decoder, said to deliver resolution up to 1680 x 1050 pixels per screen.
The G90 is based on Via's C7 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. Its standard memory complement is 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of flash, which, as per Wyse's previous thin clients, can likely be expanded, although the product's data sheet provided no information about this point.
