HP adds line of high-end ProLiant servers

HP introduces Nehalem-based naked servers to reduce energy costs

Hewlett-Packard Co. last week introduced a line of x86 servers for companies that operate massive computing facilities, where shaving a few dollars off each system's energy or shipping costs can add up to significant savings.

Christine Martino, general manager of HP's Scalable Computing and Infrastructure group, said the new ProLiant SL servers consume about 28% less power and weigh almost a third less than a "standard" rack-mount server.

The servers have what HP calls a "skinless" design that does away with much of the exterior metal casing, making them look a bit like blade servers.

The first three SL models are due to ship next month, HP said. They're based on Intel Corp.'s Xeon 5500 processors, code-named Nehalem.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
