Tested X2Go Thin Client Hardware

Hardware Features Comment Price
DELL/Wyse 3030 LT Intel Celeron N2807 Dual-Core-Prozessor - 1,6 GHz, 4GB internal flash memory (eMMC), 2 GB ram, one USB3 and three USB2 ports, Dual-DisplayPort-Out (no Daisy-Chaining, two physical ports), single Gigabit Ethernet, internal audio (built-in speaker connected to soundcard), optional WiFi/BT Will work with Debian Jessie and Debian Stretch images. Depending on the screen used, you may need to specify boot parameters earlyblankdpmsfix or blankdpmsfix. This issue is not the 3030's fault, but a general issue some screens have when using DisplayPort - HDMI is unaffected, so you can use DisplayPort-HDMI-Adapter cables as well to make the effect go away. We did test single- as well as dual-screen DisplayPort, as well as HDMI via adapters. ~ 250-500 + Tax, depending on supplier, exact model and quantity discount
Thomas-Krenn LESv3 Intel Celeron N3160 , 4 Core, 1.6 - 2.24GHz, Dual-HDMI-out, Single DisplayPort-Out, Analog Audio out, Dual Gigabit Ethernet, several USB3 ports, RS232 Serial Port, fanless, diskless by default (but allows internal SSD mounts). Requires Debian-Stretch-based TCE - will not work smoothly with Jessie or older (gfx hardware too new to be fully supported by Jessie and older). No problems with Stretch. When using HDMI out, you need to specify audioout=list and pick the proper boot parameter value from the console output on /dev/tty8 if you want to use sound via HDMI - the default is the analog audio jack. When using DisplayPort, depending on the screen used, you may need to specify boot parameters earlyblankdpmsfix or blankdpmsfix. This issue is not the LESv3's fault, but a general issue some screens have when using DisplayPort - HDMI is unaffected. According to the supplier, it is possible to run this client with three screens if you attach a DisplayPort-VGA-Adapter cable to the DisplayPort output. Lacking such an adapter ourselves, we did not test this functionality. We did test single-screen DisplayPort and single- as well as dual-screen HDMI. ~250 + Tax including ram, power supply, casing, but without optional SSD
