My "desktop" is a small 65watt box without moving parts; no fan, no sounds, by using an i3 laptop-cpu.


In my case, the heavy lifting (VM host) is done by a beefy tower system sitting in another room, and I use a puny Intel NUC on my desk (quiet, takes even less power than your 65W laptop, generates no heat) to remote into individual VMs. Although any old laptop would also do, in the real "dumb terminal" sense.

The only thing that was important to me, for the system sitting on my desk, is screen real-estate - the NUC can drive a 4K monitor, and I also have two additional 1080p monitors running off of USB3-to-VGA adapters.
