How about a Dell XPS410 refurbished? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I was surfing the Dell Factory Outlet (refurbished, scratch and dent etc) site and come upon a number of computers that look interesting.  I have had great experiences with the Dell 9100 series for multimedia use.  I believe the 400 and 410 XPS use the same case and same 375watt PSU.  Anyone know if WHS works well with the XPS410?  See some units for sale below:

  • Hi,

    They all appear over the top for WHS. They all come with an operating system that you'll have to dump, all that graphics is a waste as it will never be used, as will the modem.

    what you need to check, is, can you get Windows Server 2003 drivers for the system and any included hardware. Also, how many SATA connectors are available, how many hard drive slots available etc.

     

    HTH,

     

    Colin
