It’s not as bad as some, but I think they need to discount it further before someone will even consider this. Overall, it’s a high performance system, just not at the right price.

Dell starter server will leave you bankrupt

The Dell Black Friday deals are starting to roll in. This deal on a entry level server must be somebody’s idea of a joke though. It only gets worse when you try to customize it


The $388 discount must come from the fact that no Operating System is included by default.


Not happy with the processor? Upgrade!


Need a second hard drive to store all of your data?


I realize that server grade equipment is supposed to be higher end, more redundant, etc. However, these commodity parts don’t come close to justifying the costs Dell is trying to push here. These Dell upgrades cost an arm, leg, and all of your VC cash. No deal Dell.
