Dell promises Nehalem servers, new services news this week

The number three server vendor is expected to announce Nehalem EP-based servers and new services offerings on Thursday.

Dell plans to announce in the next few days new servers and services offerings, the company's chief executive said Tuesday.

"We have a very big announcement coming in the next few days around the Intel Nehalem architecture, our eleventh-generation enterprise architecture, along with new improvements in our services offering and enhancements to our EquilLogic storage offering," said Michael Dell at a Tokyo news conference.

Dell has scheduled a news conference in San Francisco for Thursday morning at which the announcements, further details of which were not available on Tuesday, are expected to be made.

Intel is expected to announce next week the launch of the Nehalem EP microprocessors and has allowed server vendors to begin disclosing their plans for the chip ahead of the official launch.

Apple was first in line when it announced on March 3 new Mac Pro workstations that are powered by Xeon 3500 and 5500 quad-core chips, which are part of the Nehalem EP family. On Tuesday Lenovo became the second major vendor to back Nehalem EP.

Shortly after Dell finished speaking in Tokyo it announced its high-end ThinkStation D20 and low-end ThinkStation S20 workstations will run on Xeon 3500 and 5500 series chips.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
