All their stuff comes with a 3 or 4 year Dell manufacturers warranty (4 hour response) and the prices are unbelivable (for a school techie anyway) how about a 2950, all the usual trimmings, 16gb memory, 4 73gb sas drives ... under £3k!
    Check it out for yoursel
    Haha! They're on the Isle of Man! Small world (I'm from there). They'd better not let the Lieutenant Governor see that they use 'UK' in their name!

    Build it yourself :P

    we (with out VERY limited budget)

    got a 2 opteron , 4gbs ECC Buffered RAM, H/w RAID 5 controller /w 4 146gb scsi. 2 dvd rewriters, lovely case, £200 worth of hp hardware network card, aswell as the 2 1gbps onboard broadcoms. 600Wpsu etc... £1200 (about a year and a half ago)

    were building another one this year, with just one processor, 2gb RAM, with 2tb of storage, with a RAID 5 HW controller. £200 H/W based network card etc. basically just as a fast storage area, £800 delivered

    Just how we do things here, not enough money for any other options....

    the rackmounted cases are too much ALONE without any hardware...

    We have a dell poweredge which the first server we built up is actually higher spec.. but the poweredge cost £5k, 5 x more for less ram less processor less hdd... infact we had to add another drive so it cost us more then that!!!
