I am thinking of starting a small business of consulting SME's in my city. Mostly targeting people who are looking to equip their offices with computers for the first time. I want to provide thin-client based hardware with open source solutions for their custom needs.
I am good with the software side of things, for hardware I did some research and I plan to build the thin-clients myself. I am thinking of a mini-itx board. The options I see available are a few processors from Via (Nano,C7 etc) and the Intel D945CLF mini-itx. While reading reviews of both online tells me that Via beats Intel by quite a margin but their is a cost diff Via appx $125 and Intel is appx. $70.
Please suggest the kind of hardware I should be looking for, I don't have a problem assembling them myself as it cuts costs.
