E3 is Xeon; noone suggests you get i3! :-)
I'm actually thinking about getting HP ProLiant ML110 G7, 639259-005,
which includes quad core Sandy Bridge (32nm 2nd gen) Xeon E-1220, for
under 600 bucks delivered. I was amazed when I learned that HP makes
seemingly awesome servers for so cheap.
Anyone tried these ProLiant ML110 G7?
