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.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
