IGEL Technology and Lenovo are two other leaders in the VDI thin client market. IGEL's UD line includes the UD5, UD6, UD9 and UD10. All these thin clients can run the IGEL Linux OS or Microsoft Windows Embedded Standard 7.
Google's Chromebooks are a solid VDI client option because they are cheap, easy to manage and secure. Chromebooks usually cost between $150 and $400. Because no data lives on Chromebooks themselves, IT doesn't have to worry about data breaches if a device is lost or stolen.
