HP's New Home Servers Shipping

Some of you might know I have a Windows Home Server running at home. To anyone who has a multiple computer household, I can't recommend it enough. HP recently announced two new models of their Windows Home Server based machines. The HP EX485 MediaSmart Home Server sports a 750GB Hard Drive, up from 500 in the previous incarnation. The processor has also been upgraded, from an AMD to a a 2.0 GHz Intel Celeron 64-bit.

Overall, it looks like it's still the same machine. Tiny size, but huge features. If you don't already have a home server, seriously consider picking one of these up. Or, if 750GB isn't enough for you, choose the EX485's big brother, the EX487. At 1.5TB of storage with 2 bays available for upgrades, that should suit almost any home user's needs.
