Dell recently announced the launch of the Wyse 3040, a thin client that is compatible with Citrix, Microsoft and VMware virtual workspace environments
With a new slim line form factor starting at just 0.24kg , the Wyse 3040 is the first entry-level thin client to feature an Intel Atom X5 1.44GHz quad-core processor that supports up to 2GB DDR3 RAM and 8GB flash. Designed for efficiency, the Wyse 3040 delivers 30% better performance than previous generations and with its small size, it’s also easy to mount on the back of a monitor for a clean, de-cluttered workspace. Priced at US$329, additional features include a choice in the operating system.
The Wyse 3040 comes with the virus-resistant Wyse ThinOS software that has no published APIs and therefore no attack surface, Dell said. Starting in June 2017, customers will also be able to choose Wyse ThinLinux, a thin client-optimized software based on SUSE Linux that has been further hardened and optimized by Dell for thin client environments.
