I was just about to buy a Dell Dimension 5150 with 'dataguard' which in a previous question, agreed it has a rudimentary hardware RAID from their small business smart value pages... but that was last night.  those sales ended and now they list an E520.  Anyone able to explain the E520 vs. 5150?  it seems to also have dataguard... I don't want to be running ghost to get the drive mirroroing.  My understanding was that the raid in the 5150 was independent of ghost...

thanks!

Yes, the "DataSafe" option is a RAID-1 mirrored disk pair ... so you'll have the same protection against a drive failure that you would have with the 5150.   (i.e. "independent of ghost")

The key difference between the 5150 and the E520 is that the E520 can be ordered with a Core 2 Duo CPU -> a MAJOR upgrade from the Pentium-D's.  [Note, however, that when I just checked, you had to go throught the "Home/Home Office" path to an E520 to see that option;  the "Small Business" path doesn't show the Core 2's !!]
