Hi Mike,

As the machines used as thin clients grow ever more powerful, at the same
price and energy usage, the features available also keeps expanding. I have
recently bought a Shuttle machine, that is physically smaller than my
current thin clients, comes with the Atom D2550 (one of the newer Atom
CPUs) which has two cores. I also put in 4gb of RAM, since it was almost
the same price as a 2gb RAM module. Like Stephan wrote, without 686 (and in
this case PAE) that system wouldn't be properly utilized. Even if it is
somewhat overpowered for a thin client. As a side note, I am also testing
out the Intel NUC
DCCP847DYE<http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/motherboards/desktop-motherboards/desktop-kit-dccp847dye.html>
which
is a dual core celeron, but it is so small and (like the Shuttle)
completely silent, but does not offer sound out, other than over HDMI.
Anyways, it is a matter of properly utilizing the hardware. It probably
isn't that big a deal, but it would be nice to have.
