I have a computer networking lab this semester, and i wasn't suprised to see that they hap purchased all dell's for the new lab. What did get me very upset was "server" they bought. I look up the server on dells website and here a the specs. ONE 2.8 Ghz Xeon 1GB Non-ECC Ram SCSI RAID w/ 4 * 36GB SCSI HD ONE goofy 15" LCD ONE 1000/100/10 Ethernet Card Total Cost ~$6000 US I could not belive this. you could get a DUAL G5 XServe, and a DUAL Cluster Node for this price, OR A DUAL G5 XServe and a 23" apple display. or A DUAL g5 XServe and a refund on my tution. And we all know that a DUAL G5 can kick the crap out of a 2.8 Xeon. Yes the Xserve does not have SCSI, but serial ATA is about the same right? XServe G5 has things like 2 1000/100/10 Ethernet cards. PCI-X up .75 TB of storage. ect... Is my school the only one that make dumb purchased like this?
