Dell has launched what the company calls its lightest, smallest and most power-efficient thin client. The Dell Wyse 3040 promises excellent performance and manageability when it comes to multitasking and basic productivity. The new thin client – which is compatible with Microsoft, VMware and Citrix virtual workspaces – offers an economical and secure endpoint solution that’s easy to deploy and manage.

Dell takes pride in the fact that the new Wyse 3040 is the first entry-level Intel x86-based quad-core thin client in the business that’s capable of delivering not only robust connectivity options, but operating systems as well. Users get to choose between the virus-resistant and ultra-secure Wyse ThinOS or the soon-to-be available ThinLinux when it comes to the Texas-based tech titan’s new unit. It’s the practical solution for users who are involved in various industries, even those that are considered as highly-regulated areas like healthcare, retail, education and finance.

“Our customers are looking for that ideal blend of security, performance, energy efficiency and price,” said Steve Lalla, Dell’s Senior Vice President of Commercial Client Software and Solutions. “The new Wyse 3040 thin client – the smallest and most efficient thin client – exceeds expectations of what an entry-level thin client can do.”

Featuring a fresh slim line form factor starting at less than a quarter of a kilogram (0.53 lbs), the Dell Wyse 3040 is the first entry-level thin client to house an Intel Atom X5 1.44 GHz quad-core processor that supports up to 2 GB DDR3 RAM and 8 GB flash. It’s also said to be 30 percent better when it comes to performance compared to previous models, which makes it perfect for efficient local application tasks and light multimedia use. It’s compact enough to be easily mounted on the rear of a monitor for a clean and orderly setup.

The Wyse 3040 can be deployed right out-of-the box and also has dual digital display support (2,560 x 1,600). It’s likewise easy to maintain thanks to Dell’s Wyse Device Manager (WDM) and Cloud Client Manager (CCM), both of which provide hassle-free remote configuration and policy management.
