Not to jump into the vendor game, but $190 is high.



How low can you go

Check out the used hp t610 thin client 25 - 40 bucks

Dual core 64Bit cpu 4G ram and 16Gssd with 1G bge nic. both pci-e and compact pci-e . 

I have also used the t5630 and t5620 . If you dont want to run OpenSense all of the models
work well with NetBSD and OpenBSD as well.
