£173.90 delivered unless I'm missing something?
#2
Yup £99 Excluding Vat and shipping
#3
plus VAT takes this to £116.33

Then add delivery @ £57.58

equals £173.90, total.

dunno how hot that makes this deal?
#4
It's about it's money then I'd say.
#5
It's still a good deal at this price including delivery, (£148 + VAT). The components alone would cost upwards of £160 + VAT if bought separately.

Remember, 5% off with Quidco also!

Good value upgrades are :-

Xeon 3040 2x1.83 GHz 2Mb @ £40 + VAT extra (Best value, compared to retail prices)
Xeon 3060 2x2.40 GHz 4Mb @ £84 + VAT extra (Good value, fast CPU, compared to retail prices)
Microsoft Windows Small Business Server R2 2003, Standard Edition with 5 Client Licenses @ £198.80 + VAT

Other upgrades such as extra RAM, HDD's, etc. can be bought cheaper elsewhere.

Voted Hot

£57.58 delivery?
Cold i'm afraid, for that reason alone.
#7
That is some very poor moderating guys, not good at all.
#8

That cheap?
#12
Yes, the delivery does somewhat take the **** a bit when you consider the number of units that Dell ship.

See if you can spec up something as good for the same money elsewhere then post it on here.

I'm not talking about the deal.

Okay. Wasn't clear.
#16
I haven't looked too closely at the spec for this but does anyone know if I could use this as a regular PC and just install an operating system plus plug in a monitor, keyboard and mouse?
#17
Yes. A PC is a PC is a PC. Unless it's a PPC Mac. Intel Macs are just PCs with nice cases.*

However, how good it will be for upgrading to play games, for example, depends on the slots available.


*ducks*
#18
It comes with only an 8X PCI-Express slot, so any graphics card plugged into it will not work at full 16X speed.

I'm pretty sure 16X cards will plug into an 8X slot, but there will be a small performance penalty.

I haven't tried this myself, but that's the theory.

If you don't need gaming graphics I see no reason why this can't be used as a normal PC.
#19
Difference between PCI 16x and 8x is not noticeable. There have been numerous tests showing so.
#20
That's a fantastic price! Doesn't really know why it was voted cold. This PC contains two 80GB hdds - ideal in RAID-1 configuration - and would be a worthy workstation with a Dual Core PD and 1GB memory. Voted hot especially as it has ONSITE 1 year warranty. Linux users will LOVE it to bits.
#21
yep, should be nice with suse on it,

I upped the processor to the xeon with the 1066MHz FSB for the extra £40 + vat (I Know the clockspeed is no faster but I think the additional FSB, and L2 cache will make it quicker)

PCI-E cards only work at x1 speed on this machine - have a wee look at poweredgeforums.com for more details. Still a sweet deal :D
#23
Does it come with RAID as there is an option to buy a RAID card for £70+vat ?

Surely it does RAID 0 and 1 with 2 disks?

Also has anyone managed to get delivery included?

How quiet is it? The internals look like the older Dimension 5150 with a BIG fan which was very quiet indeed.
#24
Can it use normal DDR2 memory modules or does it have to be some other ?

:?
#25
has to be EEC DDR2 and it comes with onboard raid (similar to most motherboards) - most onboard raid is "fake raid" which is why you can get the optional hardware (ie expensive!) raid card....

And only nvidia cards seem to work @ PCI-E x1, (not ATi).

Not a good base for a games machine or 3D workstation then! (But a good deal for a server, I have 1 on it's way :thumbsup: )

not sure how well they run linux, and certainly not very expandable.
#28
Sorry, voted cold because of the misleading post.

Can we please put the real total price in the header ?

£99 vs £179 ?
#29
Doesn't seem to work anymore, sold out the 1000 already? Comes up as £364.45

pci express x16 vs x8 help

Performance loss is about 10 -20% , not very noticeable.

Now it says deal on until 14/12 AND you receive a FREE GIFT - you don't think it's a 22" monitor do you :thumbsup:

Link is still working today too (Saturday 4.43 GMT)
#32
I think the freebie is a voucher off your next order (looking at the US site comments) rather than free delivery, which would be a good deal - all it says is fill your name and address and a rep will call - maybe you could ask for free postage and see what they say?!

:whistling:
#33
Or maybe ask for a reduced price to drop the Bronze 1yr Next Business Day Onsite Response for back to base?

Worth a phone call if you are interested in this.

They are entirely supported under linux, including the wireless and bluetooth.

As for expansion - I have a couple of terrabyte of disk hanging off mine.

It's quiet and small just like I like any device in my home.
#35
Sweet according to Walsh Western ETA for server is tue, got 2 500 gb 32meg cache hdd's and 2 x 1gb ram sticks on way as well.

Should make a nice swift server with 3gb ram and ~1TB of storage space for around £280

Thanks to OP
