I had a question the other day from someone saying 'why do you take the side panels off your demo computers during some of the sessions - do they run too hot :-) ?'
The answer is simple - 'No, I get so many people asking me what is in side the boxes, I take the side panels off some times just so people can look inside!'. In fact one of my colleagues is putting together a new box with a clear case just so people can do the same without removing the side panels....
The specs for the box are:
I have seen some 64 bit versions of the same thing as well. The only other change I would make to this spec is to use a PCI Video card instead of the built in version, to allow for more flexible resource allocation on the motherboard. I am not necessarily saying these are the best components, nor cheapest, but they work well for us!
