I have been considering getting two different computer systems recently. One is running software that I have never used before called Windows Home Server. The other is pretty run of the mill Win XP Pro machine. Here are the links to the two systems respectively.
They are both available at a somewhat small computer chain near me. The Windows Home Server is $510, the XP PRO is $400. There are definitely some nice things about the Home Server, but I cannot seem to figure out what the great advantage is, for that more than $100 dollar difference. The great thing about the Home Server is it has 4 drive bays, so I could concievably put 4 TeraBytes in there. But when I think about it, the XP system is going to have probably just as many, maybe one short.
If anyone has experience with this model, or any useful thoughts or ideas that might help me figure this out, I would really love to hear it. Thanks.
