HP Unveils Thin-Client Notebook

Susan Hall

HP is using technology from thin-client specialist Neoware, which it acquired only weeks ago, in a laptop that holds no data locally, reports Computerworld.


Said Andrew Gee, sales manager for HP remote client solutions:

The HP Compaq 6720t mobile thin client is a laptop with no local data residing on it, so it is immune to data loss.

The story notes it's not the first thin-client notebook, but it could be a sign the idea is coming of age.


With 1 gigabyte of internal flash storage, it will be more of a terminal than a full-blown PC, reports InfoWorld. A remote server will handle data storage and system management. It's being targeted to industries such as health care and insurance.
