HP adds Linux thin client to lineup

By   |  January 29, 2008

Linux Devices reports that Hewlett-Packard has unveiled its first new thin clients since acquiring Neoware last year. Among the new products is a Debian-based model.

The t5735 is based on an AMD Sempron 2100+ processor clocked at 1GHz. The graphics processor is a Radeon x1250, suggesting that the chipset could be AMD’s 690G or 690V; the 690x chipsets are AMD’s first to include an IGP (integrated graphics processor), following AMD’s acquisition of ATI.

Interestingly, the HP t5735 is to ship with Debian Etch installed in place of Neoware’s own NeoLinux.

Strictly speaking, the t5735 is not the only or the first Linux client from HP, as the company also includes a range of Neoware thin clients in its product lineup which can run Linux or Windows CE.

The t5735 is, however, the first Debian-based thin client from HP.

    HP’s t5725 was the first Debian-based thin client, released long before the Neoware acquisition. The t5735 looks like a refresh of that product to advance current industry trends.

    What’s cool about it is that it’s totally silent – perfect for a Linux desktop PC.

    I wonder if it has a soldered CPU – if not, it might be worth changing to a better one (underclocked probably).
