Most people have a perception that the usage of thinclients are limited to offices. However, this is not true. A thinclient could be used as a personal entertainment system as well as a device that a person or a student can use to do their daily work at home.
Android TV-box thinclients could be used for streaming videos and movies. From your TV box, you can download apps, watch local TV channels, connect to streaming apps such as Hulu and Netflix. Depending on where you live, you may even be able to connect to premium cable channels at no extra cost, especially if your TV box uses KODI software. You can also play games which you usually download from the Play store like Candy Crush Saga and many others.
Linux-based thinclient supports C, C++ and Python languages that a student could use in his/her project. Likewise, it has Mozilla Firefox and Chromium programs which could be utilized to get to the data on the World Wide Web. The thinclient also has LibreOffice utility which could be used to prepare documents, excel sheets and presentations.
