NEC last week launched a handful of new products at its Express Works Solutions Showcase in Sydney. The Express 5800 100 Series Pro/S servers are all based on Intel's Pentium Pro and Pentium II processors. The PII processor employs Intel's single-edge contact (SEC) technology.
There are four servers in the line up, representing the company's fourth generation of PC server products. Each machine is available as a basic model and is built to order. The products range from a small workgroup server $6097 RRP to a mission-critical PC server priced at $21,661 RRP.
