HP t5000 series - Thin client with Transmeta Crusoe / Effieon and T2/Linux

HP t5710

While the HP t5000 series certainly where just a regular thin clients for HP, the HP t5700 series was one of the few desktop products powered by a Transmeta Crusoe, and later Efficeon CPU, ...


The first HP t5000 (t5125, t5520, t5525) came with just VIA Eden CPUs clocked at either 400MHz or 800MHz, and a mere 128MB RAM and 64MB flash.

There apparently where four (major) t5710 runs: PC540A with Transmeta Crusoe (TM5800 800MHz), PY704AA with Transmeta Efficeon (TM8600 1.1 GHz), PY705AA with an newer generation Efficeon (TM8800 1.2 GHz) and upgraded flash memory from the former 256MB to 512MB, and last but not least PY706AA which appears to come with 512MB of factory installed RAM.

In contrast to the official listing of just 512MB supported RAM, at least the last runs (PY705 and PY706) apparently run fine with up to 1GB RAM modules.
