Abstract

The schools’ computer lab require backward compatibility, cost-effective use of existing provision because the schools can not afford to keep upgrading computer equipment at rates prescribed by vendors. Thin client is the solution of frustration with the growing total cost of ownership of personal computers. This study intended to help plan and prepare to deploy thin clients in Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Tarcisian Convent School. It advocates the concept of K12 Linux Terminal Server Project (LTSP), and describes how the school may reduce total cost of ownership while preserving good interactive performance. It also described the experience gained while deploying thin client at SMK Tarcisian Convent School. This report highlights the benefits of deploying thin client as demonstrated from the evaluation feedback and analysis of SMK Tarcisian Convent School. The report examines the estimated return on investment for SMK Tarcisian Convent School and represents the aggregate, composite findings derived from the evaluation and analysis process.
