Looking for an imaging solution

We are looking at getting a imaging product to image a master copy of windows and put it on new PC's. I have used ghost in the past and it worked great but we I just downloaded the latest trial version and its way more than we need, We don't need a server based solution we don't have that many new computers coming in per year for that. Any recommendations for products you have used would be appreciated.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're an OEM, setup the machine using the proper procedure as outlined here:

And then I would recommend deploying the image through Windows Deployment Server (WDS) which is a component of Windows server.  Yes, it's a server based product and if you don't have any server licenses available (even older ones, like 2008 R2), you'd have to buy one.  But then you're covered and for deployment WDS in my opinion is really easy.
