    Which would the customer prefer?

    Hi all

    This is my first post here at WHT and hopefully not my last

    I was just wondering what you guys and girls thought the customer would prefer to be hosted on.

    Dual 10/100 Ethernet NICs
    Red Hat Linux 7.x
    2 x Athlon MP 2000+
    1 GB PC2100 (1x1024)
    40 GB, EIDE, 7200 RPM
    40 GB, EIDE, 7200 RPM
    Cpanel 4 + WHM
    Cogent + Epik Backup @ wholesalecolo.com

    or

    Red Hat Linux 7.x
    1x Pentium 3 1.0GHz
    512MB SDRAM
    60GB, EIDE, 7200 RPM
    Cpanel 4 + WHM
    Whatever Bandwidth Providers available @ www.eservers.biz



    Thanks for your input!

    The first one, definately


    It has more RAM and CPU power, and a average customer doesn't know anything about bandwidth-providers.
    You're reading my signature, can't you do something useful?

    Which is cheaper? Do you *have* to run Redhat?

    I personally would go with the Pentium, but it's my choice. If you're doing it for a production server, I *guess* I'd go with the first one. Which is cheaper?

    that's pretty bad... if they work out to be the same price.. i belive intel i overcharging on it's chips.. but usally in a server room it's really cold to keep the chips from overheating.. so #1 is the best

    #1 for sheeeeeeeezie!
    So we finish the 18th and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know?" And he says, 'Oh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.' So I got that goin' for me, which is nice." --Bill Murray Caddyshack

    The server mentioned first will definately out perform the server mentioned second, hands down.
