Minimum hardware specification for client computers

What are the minimum hardware requirements of the client computers / terminals?

Chances are that the hardware which you already have is more than sufficient to serve as client terminals. One of the great advantages of the My sCool Server is that you can set up a high quality lab of terminals for your students by leveraging the machines you may already have.

The recommended minimum configuration of the client terminals being –  2 GB RAM, current generation Celeron or Cortex A72 (ARM v8) CPU, PXE boot capable LAN port. MSS 2.0 or later support Raspberry Pi 4B and Raspberry Pi 400 as clients as well.

For those purchasing new x86 PCs, it is advisable that they purchase Mini PCs of the above recommended configuration. They are available from several vendors with three (3) years of warranty. They consume less space and result in a very compact setup as evident in the pictures below.
