Of course one is always tempted to take apart something that is working fine and see what makes it tick. I have been running the new HP t5745 thin client at my desk for about a week now and it's working really well. Performance still feels about 10% faster than the older model. The Intel Xorg drivers are stable and fast, and I haven't seen any blinking or video problems. Looks like this one is a winner.
The inside is very clean. Memory, Apacer flash module and CPU take up the most space.
The front is well designed; microphone, headphone and two USB ports easily available to the users.
The back is clean, and offers all the ports we need. PS2 ports are appreciated to keep the USB ports clear for other devices.
If you are considering a move to thin clients, this is the best model I have seen to date. With a 400 dollar price point, and anticipated 10 year duty cycle it's certainly attractive. Our 5725s are proving to be solid work horses with very few failures even after 3 years.
