Summary: I could not resist an 8 core machine at this price, It runs ESXi 5.0 Update 1 perfectly. The only note of caution would be that the Onboard SATA RAID Controller is not supported by ESXi, so you have to load the drives as single drives. Other than that, this is the perfect hardware for a VM box!
Summary: There have been many reviews of the xw8600. I'd be hard pressed to add any more praise to the unending accolades to this legendary product; however, when the xw8600 is shipped from the factory, it normally comes with two(2) processors and fans. This unit however only is equipped with one processor and fan; some what diminishing the whole xw8600 ownership experience.
Summary: It fired right up out of the box. Everything preconfigured and ready to go. They even sent the empty boxes and manuals for the graphics board and drives. Using the system to edit a two 1/2 hour shows. Having a few issues adjusting to the new AVID software (was using Express 2.5) and converting older files to work in Composer. Would have liked to have had Boris Graphitti included.
Pros: Adequate Storage, Easy To Setup, Easy To Use, Fast, Quality Accessories
Excerpt: In quanto il processo metamorfico fisiologico ci ha portati al sopravvalutamento delle forze umane ci ritroviamo in un mondo funesto dominato da menti sovraste a cervelli elettronici. Il miniTower dell'hp ha un processore della Intel da 3 Ghz considerando i tempi potremmo dire che è lievemente sopra la media. Abbiamo però 2 GB di Ram la quale consiglio di aumentare naturalemtne il fattore dipende dal sistema operativo che si vuole integrare.
