HP has released two new desktop thin client products, called the Compaq t5730 and the t5735. The HP Compaq t5730 is based on Microsoft Windows XPe and select models include integrated WLAN. Based on Debian Linux, the HP Compaq t5735 supports a variety of open source applications.

In addition to centralised data storage for greater protection of business information and data integrity, the two new thin clients provide controlled user access and support two-factor user authentication.
Supporting a flexible and reliable infrastructure, the new thin client devices can be used as desktop appliances with Citrix’s desktop virtualisation solution, Citrix XenDesktop, maximising performance for the most demanding business environments.
For customers who need an easy-to-use deployment tool with basic capabilities, exclusive HP ThinState Tools are included with every HP thin client. With this tool, the t5730, for example, can easily deploy images to other thin clients in the network with no need to buy, install or learn any external deployment solution.
The HP Compaq t5730 and t5735 Thin Clients are available at a starting list price of $650 and $600, respectively.
