LG Electronics (LG) unveiled its advanced P Series of cloud monitors, allowing companies to do away with desktops and laptops altogether. The new VMware-based Zero Client monitors can be networked to create a virtual comput-ing system and come packaged with Cisco’s Universal Power over Ethernet (UPoE) technology, enabling centralized resources, greater system security and reduced costs.

“These monitors are a highly appealing option for the next generation workspace archi-tecture,” said J. J. Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of IT Business Unit of LG Home Entertainment Company. “The P Series combines two technologies -- cloud monitor networking and IPS panels -- for a combination that offers exciting new possi-bilities in terms of efficiency in the workplace and gives LG a significant role in virtual computing.”

After reading that twice I can't wrap my mind around it. So is it like a cloud based, all in one, where the os and everything are on the server?

It's amazing how we were using terminal PCs like 20+ years ago, moved to real PCs after that, and now we are heading back to those terminals again...

Sir, I take insult to that not to mention your statement is largely inaccurate. Terminal does not imply an old PC. If I put linux on my LGA2011 rig, that doesn't mean it is old. :)

Also as a developer I tend to use the terminal a lot.

Ever connect to another machine using Remote Desktop, LogMeIn, Teamviewer, etc?

Zero Clients are like that in hardware form, removing the need for a traditional computer per employee. Instead of a monitor + ZC unit, the monitor has a ZC built-in.

He/she's talking about this. A terminal on a computer (a text terminal) is a great thing yes.

I've worked with VM's quite a bit and the implications for office work is huge! Just have one server with a crap ton of RAM (Quad core CPU) and you can run 8 maybe even 12 computers virtually from that one! All you need is 2 NIC's one for the network,and one more for your forward clients, with a switch of course. With this the "client" would just be the monitor, just plug it in give it an I.P of the VM and now you have the (partial) power of a server!

I would love to have some of these at home, becuase then I could justify a $5000-$7500 rig to my wife :roll:. It can game for me and all the kids at one time!!!:cool:

This would use something like vmware view to manage the server-client sessions. vmware view connects with VDI/PCoIP to the vm that's done with vsphere/esxi...
