Dell server for 99 quid?

Posted on Dec 9, 2004

It’s the sort of thing that you hear about happening in the US but rarely see in the UK. Dell presumably needs to shift some inventory, so you can get a Dell PowerEdge 1600SC for £99.

Of course, once you’ve added delivery (at a stinging £49) and VAT you’ve almost doubled that at £173.90, but that’s still not a bad deal. In fact, given that you are allowed to buy two, perhaps it’s worth doing that and building one decent machine before scrapping an empty chassis (or perhaps shift it on Ebay).

Oh, I almost forgot - it’s here. Thanks to Steve for the pointer.

Update: Looks to have gone now.
