Dell launches new servers for SMBs

Dell launched Intel-powered, one-socket servers for SMBs.

Dell on Monday launched single-socket servers for small and medium-size businesses, replenishing its overhauled PowerEdge line of servers.

The PowerEdge T300, with a tower chassis, and PowerEdge R300, a rack server, are designed to consume less power and include system management tools to better manage IT tasks, Dell said. The servers have quad-core Xeon processors and provide memory expandability and redundancy features, the company said.

The servers run on processors including Intel's Celeron, Core 2 and Xeon chips. The PowerEdge R300 also supports a low-voltage Xeon processor, said Lionel Menchaca, a Dell blogger.

The servers come with hot-pluggable hard drives, which allow hard drives to be replaced without powering down the server, Dell said. They also come with redundant power supplies to boost system reliability. Both servers include Dell's OpenManage system management tools to help administer and manage IT system resources.

The servers hold up to 24G bytes of RAM and come with integrated graphics controllers. The T300 supports up to 4T bytes of storage, while the R300 supports up to 2T bytes of storage. The servers will support Windows Server 2008, Red Hat Linux Enterprise 5 and Suse Linux Enterprise Server 9 and 10.

The servers are available worldwide Tuesday and in Latin America starting March 25, a Dell spokesman said. The R300 server is priced starting at US$1,249, and the T300 starts at US$999.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
