A closer look at Raspberry Pi thin clients

With all due respect to thin client inventor Jeff McNaught, who gently rubbished the concept of Raspberry Pi-based thin clients in the last installment of this column, Viewsonic’s undercutting his argument a little bit by going to market with a thin client built around a Raspberry Pi 3 for around $100.

OK, it’s not quite the $50 price point that Dell’s McNaught mooted last time around, but that’s still pretty cheap for a thin client – prices for new, modern thin clients on Newegg start around $75, so, depending on features, $100 could be pretty competitive.
