What is rich client? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Network administration glossary:

A rich client is a networked computer that has some resources installed locally but also depends on other resources distributed over the network. The rich client's configuration is somewhere between that of a thin client, which relies largely upon network-distributed resources, and a fat client which has most resources installed locally.
