The new 4-computers per table design...

Ideally, the tables support 4 students with independent access to computers, ie, 1 computer per student.  Therefore, this shows the idea on how to place all the hardware in the space of the table.  This is a top view showing the SFF computers (those are the smaller 'squares').  

The next larger square, the one centered in the middle, is a piece of masonite, 2 ft square.  This hides all the cables in the middle, and also supports the flat panel displays.  The 5 inch diameter hole in the middle serves as an escape route for the heat generated--it will probably need a fan built into it to let sufficient heat escape.  

The flat panel monitors rest exactly above the computers.
