    WOW – this machine is 8 years old? Very solid machine – I have upgraded the OS HD to SSD and increased the speed of the unit, and I am suprised that this has become my primary work pc with dual monitors. The Xeon processor does a great job for my purposes.

    The dell Precision Workstation line is different than your standard PC. It is a work station intended for consistent use all day, all night and all year. It is the choice of professionals that want a machine that won’t go down. I have two, both are rock solid. You can get by with a P4 or upgrade to a D dual core processor. Mine are fully loaded with max memory and a couple of big drives. I have had both of them for 4 years and never gone down yet.

    I have bought this machine, can anybody please tell me the power consumption of this machine. This is machine is overall great but the only thing I am worried about is power consumption. I am planning to make this system as a server with 24/7 alive. Only 2 application will be host on this machine and will be accessed on internet.

    This workstation class machine is a powerhouse, dual processors, a 750 watt power supply, and high ram capacity makes for a great unit! It is fast, and reliable, it is lacking a few things, the network card is gigabit, but is lacking a few features like jumbo packet support. Beyond that this is a great unit!

    A workstation with a Xeon processor, even for 5 years old it’s still great. A workstation with a Xeon processor, even for 5 years old it’s still great.
