Cheapest way to setup 150 computers temporarily?

Hardware Hacking

justanotheritguy (1097001) writes "We need to provide a web-browser, keyboard, and mouse to 150 people at a convention every so often. Currently we rent laptops and set each one up on a wireless network and they all run IE and access a webserver running on the internal network. Renting all the laptops is expensive and not very reliable.

With all the new technology out there, I'm guessing there are new options for doing something like this we're unaware of. What alternatives are there to getting a webbrowser in front of several hundred people for just a few days before everything's torn down? I'm figuring some smart slashdot reader will have a really clever idea we haven't considered."
