Laptop models function in the same way as regular thin clients, depending on the back-end architecture. For information on how the various forms of virtualization work in a thin client deployment, please refer to the Info-Tech Advisor research note, “Four Thin Client Virtualization Models.” Because thin laptops, like any thin terminal, rely on network connectivity to function, some industries will benefit more than others. Areas that will see the most benefit include healthcare, manufacturing, and roaming technical support where the laptops are mobile within the facility.
