IP remote console KVM

I wonder if there is a IP based KVM device available that I could use to access PCs remotely - something like HP iLO?

I have remote locations with regular PCs where I need to get to the console during boot - at times. I do not really need to manage power, or doing diagnostics - just simple KVM over IP.
I know that there are KVM switches etc - but I am looking for something simpler.

Something that I could send through the courier to the user, and the user plugs it to the PC, and to their network.

Thank you for reply but Kavoom! is not what I am looking for. I need to see the PC while it is booting - I want to be able to get to the bios etc.

Here is something that I found - but seems a bit too much for what I want to spend.

You will use Java Console over IP KVM.
One more thing I would suggest to choose one what works nice with terminal encoding, because I had issue when my local keyboard did not match with remote and I had a problems to use text terminal and even to login.

They're not cheap, Aten KN1000A single port IP/KVM switch will set you back £500, but it does have a switched power outlet too so you can power-cycle the remote PC. CN8000A is £100 less but doesn't have the power-cycle option.
