- Thin client with bigger muscles suits power users


Manchester, England – 16 April 2008 - VXL Instruments has added a high-end thin client to it range, aimed at users of advanced applications that demand more power. The VXL Itona TC73 is suited to "power users" in organisations, giving them increased capabilities at the desktop, but retaining all the cost of ownership benefits of the thin client.

Available immediately, with aggressive pricing starting at £175 per desktop, the Itona TC73 is a diskless, fanless desktop running Linux Mozilla, Windows CE or Windows XPe. The TC73 includes a range of high performance features, including 1Gb RAM, enhanced twin-monitor DVI graphics, GigaBit LAN speeds and WiFi capabilities.

"This is the perfect solution for the power users in an organisation with a thin client policy," commented Frank Noon, VP of Sales at VXL. "Companies can still reap the benefits of low cost of ownership whilst providing each user with the desktop computing capabilities they need to perform their tasks."

The totally silent Itona TC73 is not only half the cost of a typical entry-level business PC to buy, it costs far less to operate, says VXL. The thin client can be managed centrally, does not require backup, is more reliable, more secure, is the size of a hardback book and consumes just 11w of electricity.

The TC73 is diskless and does not allow users to load their own software. As it does not store data, no backup is required, and it is immune to Windows viruses. The machine is also far more reliable than a PC – there are no moving parts such as disk drives or fans. The company provides a 3-year unlimited warranty on its products.

The TC73 completes VXL's current thin-client range. The company introduced the £99 entry-level TC23 last month and has updated its mid-range TC43 this year. For mobile users, VXL has a laptop version of the thin client, which uses the latest mobile phone technology to stay in touch with the office server. The proliferation of low-cost, high speed 3G deals means the thin client laptop is set to increase in popularity as staying connected to the office network from anywhere in the world becomes commonplace.
