HP Integrity rx4640 ($595 + freight) -

Custom builds here!


HP DEC AlphaServer ES47 ($1240) - (this is marked as an ES47/ES80 drawer with 2x 1.15GHz CPUs, vs a "single node" at with 1 CPU, but the latter "comes with a rackmount kit"? need to check if the drawer fits in a standard rack or if it requires the custom HP rack/equipment. ask mattst88 about this since he has an ES47 with 2x CPUs. double-check on 120V power too)

HP DEC AlphaServer DS25 ($1550) - (ships with 1x1GHz + 1GB, but might be able to upgrade to 2x CPUs + 16GB per Wikipedia? 5U height, 6x PCI-X cards, "Titan" family released 2002. no images in listing, confirm with seller)

HP DEC AlphaServer DS25 ($2625) - (ships with 1x1GHz + 2GB)

HP Compaq DEC AlphaServer DS10 ($1100) - (1x600MHz + 1GB, upgradable to 2GB? "Tsunami" family released 1999)
