LTSP client or PXE boot client


Hello,
I am searching for cheap LTSP clients. Unfortunately Raspberry Pi is not an option - very slow and weak performance.
Another option for me is PXE boot clients with i386 architecture and low energy consuption. The perfect option is fit PC2 but in Europe the prices start from 300 Euro.

Thank you in advance

In some cases you can use the power of the server and go to thin clients which might be pretty old.

Many people consider a group of used computers for pxe or diskless boot. Buying new seems to render the idea not cost effective.

Unfortunately the most important for me is the power consumption, since I am searching for decision up to 100 computers to run on UPS and generators and the price of those units can be huge for 100 normal computers.
