cu "connect to remote system" program

I bought an hp c360 and i would like to use it headless and do headless installations. "cu" is very useful and i like working command line, but XWindows would be also nice from time to time. I don't think i could work GUI with "cu" (or am i wrong?). Is there another way to do this?

You can connect with ssh, and if you look at the man page, you'll see..
-X lets you forward an X11 connection.
Note uppercase (-x explicity blocks X11 forwarding)
