Re: Best Workstation


Thanks very much for all of your tips!

Daryl: no I did not know anything about Orion Multisystems. Checked the
homepage and it seems to be an interesting stuff, thanx!!

Peter: Yes I'm definetly going after the W2100z with SATA drives.

Regarding Macs vs. AMD/Intel, read an article on Toms Hardware with a
lot of interestings results specially Opteron beating up the G5! Cool :)

could be, but the labs relies on a proprietary (and very expensive)
software.. its way much cheaper to licence a workstation than a
mini-cluster made out of celerons =/
