A few might argue about usability and suitability for their business, yet it can replace your aged PC. Dell has come out with a new 3030 LT thin client to offer a powerful but cost effective alternative to PCs. The Wyse 3030 LT comes with several multimedia capabilities and essential protocol and peripheral support including optional PCoIP. This small in size, thin client can be used to replace different terminals, performing various tasks.

Compact machine: It’s a bit thicker and bigger than previous 3.5-inch hard drives, measuring 7.37x 1.15 x 4.61 inches. The compact machine can be mounted behind the monitor to save more space. It is powered by Intel dual-core processor with integrated graphics engine and has three USBs (two USBs 2.0 and one 3.0) on the front and one USB 2.0 at the back. Two HDMI ports, Kensington security slot and one LAN port is also placed at the back. Meaning you get ample amount of connectivity options. The thin client comes ready to connect to Citrix, Microsoft and VMware right out of the box.

Bundled with features: Dell has tried to add maximum possible features in this small machine. It is secured with Wyse ThinLinux or virus-resistant Wyse ThinOS operating systems. Besides, it has Trusted Program Module (TPM) chip for greater security. For different uses, Dell offers various management; on-premise with “hands off” file server with Wyse Device Manager, or cloud-based with Wyse Cloud Client Manager. Depending on your requirement you can choose one, or you can manage your own.

Performance: VMware or whatever way you want to configure it. Though a new user may find it a little complicated, but professionals can simply add it to the predefined network, using the Thin OS. Once connected and required permissions granted, it will work like your previous connected PC, but with greater performance.

We used VMware to set up the device and built a Windows 10 machine on it. Running several daily productivity apps, was not a problem. We were also able to run some high graphics intensive apps as well, such as Photoshop. The thin client runs smoothly and its built-in graphics enhances the overall graphics experience. The compact machine has a small speaker inside. We played some videos over YouTube to check its sound. It’s quite tiny, so use its built-in speakers only in absence of any other alternative, else connect an external speaker using the 3.5mm connector.

We tested its power consumption which normally is a major issue with aged devices. Wyse claims to consume less than 6 watts of power. We connected the device with digital true RMS wattmeter to check its consumption in the real world. While powering on, it consumes only 1 watt of power, but while running different applications, we got 8.9 watts and in the ideal condition, it showed negligible consumption. On the other hand, if we see consumption of traditional PCs then it varies from 60 to 90 watts or even higher.

Overall, this compact thin client is capable of handling various applications easily without consuming a whole lot of electricity.
