Dell smashes Prices - Dual Core, 1GB RAM business server for GBP 99+VAT only

It is probably a marketing coup but Dell has managed to attract maximum attention with this loss leader.

The PowerEdge SC440 is (opens in new tab) on very limited sale for only GBP 99 + VAT and delivery.

The server normally costs GBP 407, so there's some very heavy savings to be made here.

It is powered by a Dual Core Pentium E2160 based on the Conroe Core, clocked at 1.8GHz with 1MB level 2 cache.

It has 1GB DDR2 SDRAM memory and two 80GB Hard disk drives which can be RAIDed together to provide either with a boos in speed or with more resilience. You also get a one year next business day onsite response warranty and a DVD ROM drive.

There's no accessories or operating systems.

All in all, this is a very powerful computer at any price.

You can change the configuration to get something more powerful but this will hike up the price anyway.
