Dell PowerEdge T105
Released January, 2008
The Pros:Low cost server that offers good performance for the price. Quiet, and good material quality (case). Easy setup, work as advertised.
The Cons:Limited maximum configuration (4 HDD, 8GB ram, 1 CPU). Lacking highend or even midrange features (low end graphics, lack of in/output). Annoying configurable options, high price jumps between options with no intermediate choice.
