Where Are the Cheap Thin Clients?

Darren Ginter writes “I find many aspects of desktop virtualization compelling, with one exception: the cost of the thin clients, which typically exceeds that of a traditional box. I understand all of the benefits of desktop virtualization (and the downsides, thanks) but I’m very hung up on spending more for less. While there are some sub-$200 products out there, they all seem to cut corners (give me non-vaporware that will drive a 22″ LCD at full resolution). I can PXE boot a homebrew Atom-based thin client for $130, but I’d prefer to be able to buy something assembled. Am I missing something here?”
