So far I am very happy with the DevonIT 6020p thin clients.


The 6020p is $139 per client and has a 800Mhz processor, 128MB RAM, and PXE boots.  It
also has sound in and out and mic ports, 2 PS2 ports, 2 com ports, a parallel port, and
4 usb ports.  Everything has worked for me thus far out of the box with Edubuntu 7.04. 
You just can't beat the power for the price with these if you ask me.

They also claim to support LTSP.  I ordered 108 of them and had one unit with bad sound
that I have to send back.

However they are not fanless and do make a minimal amount of noise.
