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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
