HP thin client computers

HP was the first company to introduce ENERGY STAR® qualified and EPEAT® registered thin clients.

With fewer overall parts than traditional PCs, these computing devices completely eliminate moving parts such as fans and disk-based hard drives. Producing very little heat, thin clients reduce cooling demands and failure rates—potentially saving resources by extending their operational lifetimes.

Due to their significantly smaller size, HP thin clients are less than one-third the weight of traditional desktop PCs, and require 40% less corrugated board packaging and more than 55% less foam. Plus, up to 98% of the materials used in HP thin clients are recyclable.

The HP MultiSeat Computing Solution allows up to 15 people to use a single PC simultaneously, each with individually supported and licensed Microsoft® Windows® access. Ideal for education and growing businesses, this cost-effective solution reduces power consumption to as little as 2.3 watts per user—as compared with 80 to 120 watts for typical individual desktops. In fact, replacing 2,000 PC desktops and monitors made in 2005 with the same number of HP thin client solutions—including the required servers—would cut energy consumption by up to 74% and save an estimated 795,000 kilowatt hours per year.1

1 The technology refresh takes 2005 desktops and monitors in an enterprise setting and replaces them 1:1 with HP t5570 Thin Clients and new HP Compaq LE19 WLED monitors. In the background, a set of HP DL460cG7 blade servers and a rack of storage disks support the new thin clients (about 70 thin clients to one blade server).
