There are three different types of Wyse thin clients... which one is right for you?

Simple
Simple thin client desktops are appliance-like devices that access server-based Windows applications, delivering excellent performance and low cost. Everything runs on the server, so you'll typically
run multi-user Windows on a centrally managed server – using either the Citrix ICA or the Microsoft RDP protocol – that remotely displays what is running on the server right on a user's desktop. Every application you run, from payroll to a browser, runs on the server. If you do plan on using a browser, consider stepping up...

Powerful
Powerful thin clients desktops do everything simple ones do and more! For instance, they have a basic web browser built right into them, so they run web applications without placing an extra burden on your servers. Plus, powerful clients support Citrix NFuse and legacy dumb terminal emulation. Powerful thin clients are the right choice if you plan to access simple intranet HTML pages and as a great transitional replacement for green-screen terminals. If you need to access the Web in general, consider moving to...

Flexible
Flexible thin clients have two very special features you won't find on simple and powerful thin clients: First, they provide the latest, greatest and richest general Internet Web browsing. Second, because they are based on operating systems like Microsoft Windows NT Embedded, XP Embedded and Linux, they also can run applications locally – right on the client, instead of on the server.

Why run applications on a thin client? Three reasons: 1.) Some applications just don't behave in a Terminal Services environment, 2.) For a fault-tolerant network, such as a retail terminal that can still ring-up sales even if the WAN goes down, and 3.) Some applications, such as graphically intensive ones, have special needs for performance or perhaps a second video card. Flexible thin clients are also your best choice if you want to access complex web pages or need access to a broad range of drivers and peripherals.

Now a few words on selecting the right chassis.

Basic
Typically, a basic chassis has USB ports, so you get limited ability to hook up peripherals. Why is that important? Because your thin client OS must support the devices you want to plug in. There are standalone basic chassis and integrated basic chassis. Basic standalone chassis are very small – about the size of a piece of paper folded in half. They can be mounted to be unobtrusive, as well. Basic integrated chassis also just have USB ports, and come in two varieties – CRT integrated and LCD (flat-panel) integrated. CRT integrated clients are ideal single-button replacements for old dumb terminals. Flat-panel integrated chassis are the right choice where space, power, consumption, heat generation or sleek looks are important. (NOTE: USB to parallel and USB to Serial cable adapters are available to allow certain "legacy" peripherals to work with the USB port on a basic chassis.)

Standard
Because not all popular peripherals (credit cards wipers, bar-code scanners, receipt printers, etc.) are available in USB versions, you may want a standard chassis for its parallel and serial (legacy) ports and the ability to add extra peripherals.

Expanded
An expanded chassis offers your choice of extras – a PCI/ISA card slot for carder expansion, and CD-ROM and floppy disk drive options. With an expanded chassis you'll get the benefits and manageability of a thin client with the expansion capabilities of PCs.

Mobile
Mobile thin clients combine the benefits of desktop thin clients – security, manageability, affordability, and reliability – with easy mobility. Plus two PCMCIA ports, a USB port, and a PS2 port. If you need mobility and security, you need a mobile thin client.
