HP beefs up thin-client line

HP beefs up thin-client line

Hewlett-Packard Co. is working to expand its thin-client offerings by building its first enterpise-level products from scratch.

At the TECHXNY conference in New York today, HP officials pitched two new thin clients, the HP Compaq t5300 and t5500, as cost-saving alternatives to PCs. Jeff Groudan, vice president of commercial desktop marketing for HP personal systems group, said the low price should make the new units appealing to government agencies.

At $379, the t5500 has a 733-MHz Transmeta Crusoe TM5800 processor, 128MB of double data rate synchronous dynamic RAM and four Universal Serial Bus ports.

The $349 t5300 has a 533-MHz TM5600 processor, 64MG of synchronous dynamic RAM and four USB ports.

Both systems come bundled with the Microsoft Windows CE .Net operating system, Citrix client software to access Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server applications and Altiris deployment software that can manage thin clients and server, notebook and handheld PCs.
