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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
