HP MediaSmart Server EX487


Gary Quigley over at MS Windows Home Server blog has whipped up a nice, detailed review of the: HP MediaSmart Server EX487.

Here are a few pics and unit specs below. Overall, the power and size look impressive. The $750 price tag is a bit steep considering you can re-purpose some old legacy equipment or get some duo core items and a few 1 tb drives for less.  Still, HP has a nice unit.
