Ipex ThinOffice WBT300
The Ipex thin client is very similar in physical dimensions to the HP however it is built into a sturdy rectangular metal chassis that is the traditional IT beige colour.
The case has some physical facilities for a smart card reader and a PCMCIA socket, but neither was installed in the unit we looked at. Perhaps they may be available as an option on other models. The CPU is a VIA C3 Eden ESP Ezra/Samuel 2 chip. There is also a IDE connector on the mainboard which had a M-Systems DiskOnChip 16MB flash memory module plugged into it which contains the Microsoft CE O/S and custom configurations.
The system boots into a Windows CE connection manager that allows you to set/configure and also connect to your thin client serving environment. The Microsoft Windows CE environment is something worthy of further consideration to ensure your users and applications will be comfortable operating on that platform especially when you consider the Linux/Solaris/Unix or Embedded XP alternatives.
