What is a Thin Client?
To simplify it, a thin client is a computer that consists of minimal of components. It lacks traditional hardware and it is built in a way that it can connect to your central systems where your program runs such as MS Office, email and CRM. This means that a thin client is not in need of as much capacity, performance and power that it would have to be if all your programs where locally run in a regular computer.
