Thin Client question

Hi Guys

We currently use Wyse T10 thin clients running Wyse Thin OS at our client sites, to access our various VMs hosted in our data centre through an NPLS network setup.  The users normally connect either through a direct ICA connection onto a dedicated desktop server or via Citrix Storefront.

We are opening a new site shortly, and I need to purchase some new thin clients.  I have been given 3 options but I'm not sure which is best.

Wyse T10 is what we have currently, but I have been offered a Wyse T10D which has a dual core processor, double the RAM, onboard flash storage and supposedly better graphics capabilities.

My question is, will the increased spec of the thin client have any effect on what the users experience ?  We have had some complaints of stuttering typing, and "laggy" performance at times, but can't see any issues with server or connection.

The other question relates to the cheaper T50 that is running a version of Ubuntu.  These are much cheaper than the ThinOS versions, but I am slightly concerned that I wouldn't be able to configure them to run in our environment.

Any advice would be really appreciated so I can make a more informed choice.

Thanks
Matthew

stuttering typing is network latency and can be solved by QoS. There is nothing terminal can help you.

Back in 1990 at University we had Sun 3 servers with 1024x768 terminals over network and guess what - they were snappy like lightning (with CPU power and RAM adequate for modern microwave oven)
