HP ProLiant MicroServer gets a spec bump

Most of the news out from HP recently has all been doom and gloom so it’s quite refreshing to see that someone in there is still focusing on something positive.  I’ve personally quite liked the look of the MicroServer and these new spec bumps make it that little bit nicer.

The processor has been bumped from 1.3Ghz up to a 1.5Ghz AMD Turion processor,  another 1GB of memory as standard and also the current 250GB drive all just for $349 which is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me!  When I heard of the update part of me was hoping for a move to Intel processors,  but then that’s just me having no real experience with AMD processors.  I’d be interested to find out how many have been tempted to upgrade from their MediaSmart servers to one of these babies?

More details of specs on the HP site. So far I don’t see them available on other favorite sites like Newegg but we’ll keep our eyes open for when they are available.

Hi there, I'm Tommy and I've been messing around with PCs and electronics since before I can remember. I had been running my own WHS "frankenserver" for a good few years before I picked up an ex490 on super special after HP has discontinued them and that's, in turn, how I found this little community of fellow enthusiasts.

Doesn’t seem to be much information out there on the N40L. I couldn’t even find it on AMD’s website.

Here are some Spec’s I found http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Turion%20II%20Neo%20N40L%20-%20TEN40LGAV23GME.html

Not really sure its a big bump. What is interesting is HP is packaging one unit with Windows SBS 2011 Essentials Edition but I will not comment on the price.

I’m glad I didn’t wait for this upgrade. I went with the ML110 G6 instead.

I think that’s the same old spec server, no?
