Computer for Hotel lobby

CanOfWorms asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-20
I need to recommend a computer to be used by the public in a hotel lobby environment. I cant be cleaning this computer of junk software and malware every week. I need some recommendations. I have seen some use Thin Clients that run a light version of Windows 7 - they seem able to use most web content and are Read only so rebooting them rids any malicious and junk software that has been installed. Is that my best bet?

Another option I have thought about is a drive imaging application that could easily be re imaged by the staff.

My worry in using the Thin client is some web content will not work and we cant have that.

Thanks for your ideas!
