Server walkthrough: Taking apart the HP Proliant DL380 G6 server

HP has released the sixth generation of its popular DL380 server

The rear of the HP DL380 G6 has four Ethernet ports ('2'), which can also be used for iSCSI; as well, you get PS/2, serial, monitor and USB 2.0 ports ('4'), and an iLO 2 Ethernet port for accessing the server's built-in management console ('3'). There is space for up to six PCI Express expansion cards ('1'); there is an option to have a PCI-X/PCI Express card configuration instead. The UID light on the back ('5') lets you quickly identify the server if you can't get to the front of it.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

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.
