HP adds line of high-end ProLiant servers

HP introduces Nehalem-based naked servers to reduce energy costs

Hewlett-Packard Co. last week introduced a line of x86 servers for companies that operate massive computing facilities, where shaving a few dollars off each system's energy or shipping costs can add up to significant savings.

Christine Martino, general manager of HP's Scalable Computing and Infrastructure group, said the new ProLiant SL servers consume about 28% less power and weigh almost a third less than a "standard" rack-mount server.

The servers have what HP calls a "skinless" design that does away with much of the exterior metal casing, making them look a bit like blade servers.

The first three SL models are due to ship next month, HP said. They're based on Intel Corp.'s Xeon 5500 processors, code-named Nehalem.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
