    Errr... The drives in the Xserve are already Hot-Swappable.

    .... that's an estimate for 3rd quarter of this year for domestic sales. they don't even show up for international.

    what IS heartening is that, compared to q301, they increased sales some 274%.

    Oops my bad, they are hot swappable. (Last time I listen to my Mac buddy without checking facts.)

    Can anybody confirm if you can setup RAID level 5 on the xServe?

    I am not positive, but i dont think the xServe has hardware RAID of any kind.

    It's the redundant power supplies it's really missing. SCSI drives would be a good addition too but that would add mightily to the price.

    XServe has the same software RAID that any Mac OS X machine has. You could always add a PCI card though.

    Xserve has software RAID 0 or 1, the Xraid (3U RAID server) coming out sometime this year will have hardware RAID - 4 dedicated controllers, I believe.
