Devon IT has been selling VIA based small form factor Puppy PCs to readers of this forum for a few months. These Puppy-based PCs are based on our 6010 thin clients. We've had a very positive feedback from the readers who have purchased this unit, and we'd like to announce a new and improved version.

The new version is based on our 6010B terminal which has a faster processor: VIA C3 800Mhz. You can get more info at http://www.ntavo.com/ntaterminal.php
It is upgraded to 256MB of RAM, and runs the latest version of Puppy OS (1.05 at the date of posting). We can sell these at US$230 plus shipping to readers of this forum. Shipping fee is $10 for the US. We include a US keyboard, a mouse and a power cord.

We cannot offer support on the OS but the terminals come with our 3 years warranty. We are not advertising these on our site so if you send an email, please make sure you refer to the "Puppy"! Also, we are donating $10 of each Puppy Thin Client sold through this forum to Barry - no strings attached - to help foster his development efforts.

We will also include - free of charge - one of our popular NTAVO Penguins with each terminal.

Since this is a prototype, the configuration and price may change accordingly and I will keep you apprised as it evolves.

If you have any questions on buying, send an email to info@devonit.com or send me a private message. If you have questions that would be of interest to the forum, feel free to post them here and I will answer as soon as I can.

Finally we encourage our users to send us feedback at puppy@devonit.com

Thanks!
Stephane, Devon IT

The Puppy Linux Foundation of which I am one acting publicity "officer" welcomes all hardware based Puppys.
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/FoundationPuppy

What we can offer:

1. A free OS (It is based on Free Linux, It is Free to download, Free it remains)
2. Integration. We want Puppy in hardware (well I do). If you wish to discuss anything post on this forum.
3. Fun. Yes I am sorry but we are seriously more fun than Redhat (sorry Redhat).
4. We are friskier

PS - Well done on offering the free Tux - that would seem to be the clincher . . .

I can't find if these have USB 1.1 or 2.0 type of USB ports and the type (DDR?) of RAM. Do you have some more information? Thanks

PostPosted: Wed 21 Dec 2005, 23:13    Post subject: Viability of thin-client as home PC?  

Hi--am enjoying my newborn Puppy Linux and am thinking about buying the thin-client or the Chubby Puppy PC. The lightness of the thin-client intrigues me--but I am not a techie-geek yet. I love the idea of silent or almost silent operation--but what do you do about storage? The other question is attaching a CD/RW drive (external?)--is it easy and smooth? I am looking for something very reliable and smooth to write my dissertation on over the next couple of years and longer. The stability and speed of Linux is an asset and I am in love with small form-factors. I don't mind attaching an external CD or DVD drive if it will work. I would basically like a machine for word-processing, websurfing (is Java supported?) and audio and video (not recording, just listening and watching). Can I attach peripherals to the thin-client to do that?

Both look great, I will figure it out....I reinstalled a video card today, opening up a PC for the first time. Duh. Now I know I can work with either and figure out a good configuration....

Going multisession will enable you to work with your files as long as there is a PC with CD writer around...
