What, nagios too complex?  Worked great for the last company I was with... though it did take 6 months to setup to monitor about 100 servers.

You can try SpiceWorks
www.spiceworks.com
There's also Big Brother and Big Sister -

http://bigsister.graeff.com/

You can also create some scripts using ping and WMI that can do likewise...

But keep in mind, you PAY for EVERYTHING.  It's a question of HOW.  You want free - you'll pay for it in terms of learning time and configuration time and the headaches that go with products that are often quite functional, but also, quite non-user-friendly. You pay for a product and they can get a lot more user friendly and easier (and faster) to deploy.

What's wrong with Nagios?

It's the most popular free Linux/Unix monitoring tool for good reason.

Big Brother is my default answer, if Nagios exceeds your needs.  Big Sister is another interesting option.

Outsourced monitoring providers can be useful, especially since they have a true "outside view", but I wouldn't rely on one, if I don't have confidence in their business model.
