The OptiPlex FX170 and FX130 thin clients are the smallest yet for Dell, at 1.5 inches wide and weighing less than 1.5 pounds. Like other thin clients, they allow computation and file work to be done on a centralized application server that allows different points of access. Dell is offering the two models for high-end enterprise and lower-end computing, based on two different architectures. The OptiPlex FX170 runs on the Intel Atom 1.6ghs processor, supports up to 1600 by 1200 32-bit color and supports both Linux and Windows embedded 2009 operating systems. The FX130 features VIA Eden processor architecture, 1GB of flash storage and supports up to 1920 by 1200 32-bit color.
