Benefits of Blades used as Terminalserver

Hello,
i have a general question about Blades.
 We have round about 15 Blades used as Terminalserver and installed with W2K3 Std.
Actually a business consultant investigate out network and server infrastructure.

He asked me if i could imagine to use the blades for other things and setting up standard 19" Rackserver
as new terminalserver.

So my question is, is his proposa was justified ? What arguments can i give him ? Costs or technical advantages ? And if yes, which advantages ?

Friendly regards

Thank you so far.

Can anyone tell me, if possible, what is the recommendet or minimum technical equipment (CPU, RAM...) for a Terminalserver with round about 25-30 users and 90MB used RAM per User ?
Which HP Blade and which HP Rackserver would you prefer ?

We plan to buy a HP EVA 4100 or 6100 for round about 60 Servers. Make it sense to take our Terminalserver into account ?

Thank you for your effort.
