I am in need of some hardware advice, and if I sound like a novice, it's only because I am! Without alot of detailed explanation, we have an opportunity to to potentially supply 40K+ devices (Hybrid desktops) to a campus enviornment. The ONLY application is for internet access. There is no additional need for any word, financial, etc, etc. (Office type)applications. I say we need desktops, however an "all in one" type laptop would be best to minimize installation labor, but cost is the driver. I do not even know where to begin. Obviously an HP, Compact, Dell type company would be first on my list or should they be? Any advice would be appreciated. We also need a tutorial "for beginners" and would be interested in where to go for such a developer.
