Gateway Micro Server - network server

The $2999 Gateway Micro Server 100 and the $3499 Gateway Micro Server 200 are both powered by 64-bit RISC processors, which reside in a small server box. Inside the box are dual 10/100 Ethernet controllers and an internal 56Kbps modem. Completing the picture is a five-port 10/100 Ethernet switch, modem cable, network cables, user manual, setup poster and Micro Server Companion CD.

The differences between the Micro Server 100 and 200 (apart from the price) are the memory and storage configuration. The Micro Server 100 comes with a 10GB Ultra ATA hard disk and 32MB of RAM, while the Micro Server 200 has a 20GB hard disk and 64MB of RAM.

Gateway has achieved these configurations and price points through its network operating system choice - Linux. Traditionally, network OS purchase costs have involved per-user licences, but Linux's boasts free distribution (and it can also support up to 150 users).

The Micro Server can be set up as a stand-alone file server or as a supplementary server on an existing network. Client setup for Windows 95 and 98 is done via a setup wizard, while Windows NT workstation setups are conducted manually. Setup times and the complexity of the configuration will vary according to how the Micro Server is deployed. If you don't have the time to attempt installation yourself, Gateway provides a $495 standard installation option that includes setting up the server as a standalone system, configuring a workstation and providing 30 minutes of tuition.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

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.
