Fancy a Pizza Anyone

Advantages: Small and Cheap
Disadvantages: Cabling can be a bit of a nightmare

I first used the Generation 1 DL360 around 4 years ago, they were somewhat revolutionary as they came in a 1U package, meaning that 42 could be squeezed into a rack. For some reason I think because they are thin but wide and long they got named pizza boxe ...

Good for the average user.

Advantages: Small and Space Savvy
Disadvantages: Not much power.

This computer makes a great internet/email and word processing computer. But, it lacks the processing power , graphics card, and sound that is required for the full fleged computer gamer. The space saving design of this computer is unmatched. It's ...
