The deal is inclusive of £39 Cash back from HP for the extra memory BUT it must be Part No 432804-B21.http://uk.insight.com/apps/productpresentation/index.php?product_id=HPP875422
NOTE THERE IS A HITCH WITH THE DOUBLE MEMORY REBATE
in that the server will take 1, 2 , or 4 dimms and they must be matched. As there is 2 already in the pc 1GB is no good unless you are buying 2. Worth checking with HP if you really do want the offer as I am sure they will honor it somehow or we could set up a swap club for trading 2x 512 for a 1gb or you could simply buy an extra 1gb dimm from crucial but note it must be ECC

Deal made up as follows
1GB ECC £ 45.81
Less rebate £39
The ML is available cheaper elsewhere but cannot find anywhere with the memory as well although PCWB runs it close after taking account of quidco.
Worth checking Dabs as they had it for less but have no stock but their price appears to have gone up today.
A bit esoteric I know but a home server is becoming more common these days and you get embeded Nvidia Raid to boot - makes it cheaper and more usefull than a lot of NAS boxes although it is not hot plugable. Add 4 Samsung 750gb disks at £80 each (ebuyer) and you have got a great storage solution.
