Dell and Gateway announce Xeon-based servers

Dell Computer and Gateway have announced new server products based on Intel's new Pentium II Xeon processors.

Dell has released "the most powerful computer the company has ever offered": the PowerEdge 6300. The company claims the server delivers up to twice the performance and a 100 per cent improvement in rack density, over the company's current high-end server. Prices start at $US10,088, and the server has received hardware certification for running SAP's R/3 software for Windows NT server.

The PowerEdge 6300 supports up to four 400MHz PII Xeon processors; offers PCI Hot Plug support; and can be converted easily from stand-alone to rack format. The performance, availability and rack-density characteristics of this server make it ideal for large file server consolidation projects, or transaction-intensive applications, according to Dell.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
