Hi,

I need a thin client, that when turned on will boot up to a web page, needs Java, the thin client will be a standalone unit there will be no server supporting it. It is going to be used to monitor a secuirty camera.

Does anyone know a unit that will do this.

Thanks

Also.. since I just reread and realized you might want some hardware too.
There are lot's of linux based small format PC's out there as well that can do the job, many off which come with a mounting bracket to mount to a normal screen. You could also look at some of the ATOM based all in one PC's as they aren't too pricey with windows XP and just a shortcut of the URL in the startup folder. (If you want to also disable the start menu etc that can be done). I'll give you some instructions if you want to go that route.
