Replacement SIMS Server
Just about to replace a SIMS server. Attached is a spec for Dell t110. I would usually use the t320 series but this school is strapped for cash.
is the t110 with 16gb ram enough

RAM is okay, processor is probably okay, but i'd want more disks, to separate the OS from the data partition and ideally have better RAID than mirroring.

I would find out what you got to spend.
I would go raid 5. Don't need 1tb. 500gb would do the job over a few discs.
80 gb for o's and rest for data.

Depends really, how much is the RAM and is it a primary school running just SIMS with SQL Express, cause that's only going to use 1GB ram, so anything over 4GB is wasteful really. 8GB would be more practice unless it doesn't cost much more then go nuts! Like you said more disks would be the better option, a pair of good SSD ideally otherwise you need more disks.

If you're strapped for cash then give me a bell when you get back... We've sorted loads of primaries and secondaries with superb refurb SIMS servers for far less than the cost you would be looking at for that dell.
You'll even get a couple of years warranty for free too
