Does anyone have any experience with Dell Servers? I’m not a particular fan of their desktops for various reasons, mainly lousy hardware and support, but I’ve read several good things about their server platforms. Recommendations from people you know are always worth more though.
I ask because they seem to run deals on their servers quite often. I outfitted a PowerEdge SC420 with a Pentium 4 520 (2.8Ghz, 1MB Cache, 800Mhz FSB), 1GB of DDR memory, and a 80GB SATA drive for less than $500. I’m not in the market for a new machine anytime soon, but something like this would be a much better system to recommend than their silly little Dimension desktops with Celeron processors.
