Now, we don’t normally cover this sort of networking equipment, but we were quite impressed by HP’s new t410 All-in-One Smart Zero Client after we spoke to its proud product manager Walt Jurek. First of all, this isn’t an AIO desktop PC, nor is it an LCD monitor — well, if you’re unfamiliar with thin clients, just think of this as an 18.5-inch, 1,366 x 768 LED-backlit monitor (featuring a 3M technology for the 200 nit brightness — our money’s on the Uniformity Tape) that uses just one Ethernet cable to get both its 13W power from a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch, as well as data connection over Citrix, Microsoft or VMWare protocol. The t410 can automatically detect the virtualization environment and then reprogram its digital signal processor when needed, meaning less manual work for the admin (in theory, anyway). More after the break.
