    cheap server box to sg?

    I'm looking to purchase cheap server from the states to ship over to singapore as the prices in sg are pretty high.

    I need no co-lo or hosting bundles, just the box itself.

    ANy recommendations?

    i've checked some pretty neat P4 single chip 1U server retailing at below US$700. In sg, P3's OEM 1U servers are retailing ard SG$1400+, and p4's in the range of SG$1800+. Pretty expensive to me. So i'm thinking of some budget server from US, pay another hundred over bucks to get it shipped over. How's that sound? Not feasible?

    word of caution : think of RMAs ...

    your plan sounds good but what happens if something in the server breaks and you need to return the part for a warranty claim ... what happens then ?
