    Dell Precision T5400, getting on a bit now but would be quick enough to not skip a beat apart from the dire RAID controller that seems to not like disk writes very much, even slows down the Crucial M4 SSD I've got in it for VM use

    I've got one of the newest RM Ones (EcoQuiet!) that were purchased before I started. i3 2120T, 19" widescreen. Upgraded to 20GB of RAM and a 120GB SSD and a 22" second monitor.

    I'd keep hold of that. It's going to be a collectors item soon!

    Curious as to why that might be...?

    Ah, right. I haven't had to think about RM in a couple of months, so I'm not well up on their shenanigans!

    Snap. With a 120gb SSD Windows 8.1 runs quite nicely on it.

    May get more ram for mine though. ..

    I think the few 380Z's we have will be more likely a collectors item than 300 mediocre RM Ones!

    HP Workstation XW6600

    2 x Intel Xeon E5405 2.0GHz
    16GB RAM
    2 x 500 GB HDD 7200 RPM
    NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 graphics
    PCI-e 2 x USB 3.0
    PCI-e 2 x eSATA 6Gbps

    The machine originally cost £800. I've added a few bits and bobs to it over the years that brings the total cost to approx. £1000 - £1100 - and I've had it since mid 2008; running Windows Server 2008 R2 as my main OS.

    These machines are brilliant! We've sold loads of these. They run like a dream with a pair of E5450 3.0GHz Quads and 32Gb RAM

    In my last place I had a custom built PC which had a nice Antec case (not a top end I will add just one for a few HDDs and front connectors), 2nd gen mid range i5, 16Gb Ram, 120GB SSD and a 1TB storage SATA drive, mid-range dual output VGA card for driving the 2 screens I had and a simple Coolermaster PSU. Cost about £500 in parts at the time so nothing outrageous and given I ran many VMs for testing and checking things it was certainly good value compared to a brand new HP of the same sort of spec.

    Before that I had a refurbished HP Pro Workstation from ICT Direct which did me nearly 3 years of good service
