    Hi!

    I'm looking for a cheap thin client to replace my laptop at work.
    I would need 2x dvi (1920x1200), and at least 2 usb ports.
    It needs to support RDP to Windows 10 and Server 2016 (and earlier versions).

    I saw the HP T310, but as this is a Zero Client for Vmware, I'm pretty sure I cannot use this.
    Or is there a cheap Teradici card that would make it possible to connect to my workstation with the T310?

    -Jannis

    Dell workstation cards are available for around $100 on Ebay - I assume it might work with Dell cards too. Or get a P25/P40 from Dell
    Please note that Teradici is moving to a subscription based firmware model so future driver/fw support might be limited to critical fixes...

    That said, my card is working fine with Win10 1709;)

    I just found the HP T620, which looks promising.
    Not sure if it's possible to download firmware updates from HP without a service contract though...

    If the device itself is under warranty then it should be no problem, else it might work since they provide a lot of stuff for free (if you can find it)

    I don't think that there is manipulated boxes out there, but o/c you might need to flash the latest firmware from the vendor if you can obtain it

    seems it’s possible to download t620 os from hp without service contract.
    drive is a 16gb m.2, so that could be replaced just to make sure too
