I am looking for a very small profile computer running Windows 7 that can drive 3-4 monitors since I am constrained for space for a work project. I am currently testing an HP t5740e thin client with an ATI FirePro 2460 quad head video card. The problem is that this device runs Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) rather than Windows 7 and my software vendor is unwilling to certify their software for use with WES7. Is anyone aware of a very small hardware system on the market that runs on Windows 7 and can drive 3-4 monitors?

The HP t5740e thin client dimensions are 8.7 in x 10 in x 2.9 in, and I am looking for something as close to that size as possible since I am very constrained for space.

I don't think this is unique enough to survive as an on-topic question - it's just a shopping recommendation right now. Speaking as somebody who works for a company who actually sells such a product, there are a ton of SFF and HTPC systems out there that have at least one PCI-e x16 slot that you could throw a 2460 or another comparable card into. You shouldn't have any trouble locating such a thing unless your space requirements are ridiculously small - in which case I'd encourage you to edit the question to provide more specifics. I think it's possible to add value to this question. –  Shinrai Apr 18 '12 at 17:08
@Shinrai I added the dimensions I am seeking to provide more specifics. Yes, my space requirements require a very small size so there are probably not too many systems out that meet these specs. –  Dave Johnson Apr 18 '12 at 17:40
That is awfully small. I don't know of any good full featured solutions that are that thin. The one we offer is roughly 9" x 13" x 4" and I don't really know of any other products that are significantly thinner. (Most chassis will be 3.5" or thicker, which I'm guessing might be a problem. 10" depth probably isn't so hard to find, though) –  Shinrai Apr 18 '12 at 18:08
@Shinrai If your company's product can drive 3-4 monitors at those dimensions and runs Windows 7, I would be interested in more details. I haven't found something that small that can drive more than 2 monitors besides the HP thin client that runs WES7 rather than Windows 7. –  Dave Johnson Apr 18 '12 at 19:11
