Hey guys,

Iv just been on via embedded looking at these embedded mobo's / computers.

i can build one with an TFT monitor for about the same price i could get a second hand usable computer with CRT, the second hand computer WOULD be more powerful (P3 800 - 1 GHZ) i would need to get new cases for them and they would still be ugly. The embedded look nice and with TFT take up less space.

I need them for setting up an internet Cafe, obviously they will be networked to a computer(or a router) in the back and linked to the internet. They will most probobly have Knoppix or Debian running on them, but if we cant get that to go we may have to use windows.

What do you guys make of micro-ITX and what do you think in general?

Thanks

Well, all of the internet cafes round here are used for online gaming as well so those wont be pwerful enough if you intend do to that sort of thing on them, and they are usually connected to a small server in the back from what i have observed. If though you dont have the cash for this kind of thing have you thought about running a more powerful server computer that is running several terminals(keyboard mouse and monitor). For just using the internet that kind of set up should be fine you will also need to ensure you have a good connection speed to the internet between 10 and 100 Mbps. There are lots of options for this kind of system i have never seen two the same in my local area.
