HP Giving Away A Free Server When Purchasing £313 Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essentials

Until the 29th of February, HP is giving away one Microserver when purchasing the HP Windows Small Business Server 2011 Essential ROK Edition (code number 652442-A21) operating system which costs a mere £312.72 at Lambda-tek.

The MicroServer itself is the new ProLiant N40L, the successor fo the N36L, and has a dual core AMD Turion II Neo processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 2MB L2 cache. Oddly enough, the Turion II started life as a mobile processor but its low power dissipation made it an ideal candicate for a microserver.

Other features include 2GB DDR3 ECC UDIMM (up to a maximum of 8GB), a 250GB hard disk drive, embedded RAID 0/1, GbE Ethernet port, a 150W PSU and one year warranty.

Up to four hard disk drives can be housed (five if you count the space dedicated to the optical drive). It comes with a D-Sub port and six USB ports as well making it particularly suited for a polyvalent media streamer/entry level server.

Details of the promotion are available here and submissions will have to be received by Friday 30th March.

Note that you can also get a £100 cashback on the N40L if you don't need the server operating system.
