Do they have local network? If yes I suggest using PXE. You can configure your own installation server, then via network install all system simultaneously – c0rp Jan 21 '14 at 13:11

Are those 500 desktops the same? (same hard disc etc.) For maintanance: see puppet + puppermaster: help.ubuntu.com/12.04/serverguide/puppet.html (that will assume you installed it already though ;) ) – Rinzwind Jan 21 '14 at 13:12
