This... is very very nice. The place I work at has thousands of thin clients and their all several times larger than this. If the price is right, I think I would pick up a few for my own home.

Wiki has a pretty good writeup on them Inspector http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thin_client

The way we do them, we have server rooms full of blades. Then thin clients act as the control point for the keyboard/monitor/mouse on the user end, while their desktop is a VM running on the blades. Users have no access to actual computing hardware.
