Not such a good deal after all, as you need to buy the 2008 foundation software as well to qualify for the 100 pound off! I will leave it upto HDUK voters to find out if its hot or not :-)

Save £100 when you buy this server and Fujitsu Windows Server 2008 Foundation - Product code S26361-F2565-L308

the price posted has already subtracted the 100 pound cash back

Note this is an Ex VAT price, as most people buying these will be companies

I have just looked at this again, and you have also to buy 2008 foundation to get your 100 pound off, so maybe not such a good deal :-(

Crafty advertising from these people

Sorry - I assumed it was £100 cash back from someone like quidco?
Yeah it means windows server 2008 OEM is only £44 if you buy a server

I think looking at the spec, it seems good quality hardware. Not sure that you could get a dell or HP server with that processor for that price???

@ £144 for the server 2008 foundations...

X3220 isn't a true Xeon - it's a Q6600 with server-orientated prefetchers.

A Q6600 with a 1TB HDD and 4GB of RAM would be under £500 so I fail to see the mega deal.

You don't seem to understand that you have to spend £144 on Windows 2008 to get the £100 cashback.

Pricey box if Jakgs info on it being a modified Q6600 is correct.

Why do you think I dont understand that I have to spend 144 pounds to get the software, after all I did post this "Not such a good deal after all, as you need to buy the 2008 foundation software as well to qualify for the 100 pound off! I will leave it upto HDUK voters to find out if its hot or not :-)"

It makes me wornder if all this is worth it, I was under the impression that the idea of this site was to make people aware of what is out there

The two possible servers you could be referring to, one with 3 yr warranty and without:
1) ]with 3yr warranty item = 599.97 EX VAT = £689.97 INC VAT + £166.72 Win 2008 (Inc Vat) - £100 discount when both bought = £756.69

2) ]without 3yr warranty item = £479.97 EX VAT = 551.97 INC VAT + £166.72 Win 2008 (Inc Vat) - £100 discount when both bought = £618.69

So at best item (2) without Win 2008 is an extra £52 withut even checking up on delivery.

Update: I see you have changed the text in your post with I hadnt read since my first post, sorry. That now clarifies it but youll find all HUKD are posted INC VAT and INC delivery.
