That's not a Windows 7 feature but there is...

Windows Terminal Server.

I found it cheaper to get cheap laptops than to setup that.

While you can't do thsi with Windows

While you can't do this with Windows... Cheaply anyway... Linux offers this functionality, as does pretty much every other *nix OS out there. The lone exception would probably be Apple's Mac OS X, which can do it, just not with the Aqua GUI that is pretty much the whole point of the OS.

So, it might be worth the time to do a little research into Linux to see if it could possibly fit your needs. Though even with Linux, you'd need a pretty high end desktop to be able to handle 3-4 simultaneous GUI connections, and you could probably just get 3-4 lower end desktops for roughly the same amount of money.

Additional Information

I would like to add that each person would be logging in one at a time. I'm guessing that just about any remote login software would work. But, each person would need different privileges, access to certain programs and files, but not others. I don't know what remote software could provide this requirement. Could I please have some recommendations?
