In The Fight for a Smaller PC

A company called Chip PC Technologies has introduced a new PC that can fit directly into the wall. See the news article for more details...

Tell us what you think below...

This seems like a dumb idea since computers always need upgrading, and this will make them more expensive to replace. Also if you are going to need a keyboard, mouse and other peripherals, a small PC hardly adds a huge amount of room.

After looking at the website, even more problems come to mind, firstly the shape of these prevents them from working in standard American power outlet holes. Also they claim on there website that it is impossible for their systems to get viruses because they have no hard drive, this is ridiculous it has flash memory so it can.

You create your own hole, and uses its own flexi jack system. You use POE power which uses a maximum of 5watts. You dont use regular outlets. Also, getting rid of a huge desktop PC creates alot of extra desk room in a cubicle. And also, it wouldnt need to be upgraded since all your extra crap comes off of a main Citrix server. Great for business dude, and horrible for a mainstream user. This isnt aimed towards people like us but big companies.

It's a very good idea from a Citrix/thin client environment perspective as it takes up a whole lot less room. Get a virtual keyboard, wireless mouse and a mini wireless projecter and you've got some space saving for sure

From a support perspective it ould be a nightmare if it went wrong

It's a thin terminal so you'd have to have something ruinning Citrix or Windows Terminal Service for it to work

these haev been out for a couple of years, as kemp said it's a thin client, So you would need an application server for it. Tried one before, there good for basic stuff. Haredly any education software works on them though

We got Citrix running Win 2k3 and it runs anything we put on it basically
