  • Need new 'server'

    An old laptop I have been using as my HS machine has finally given up.
    I cannot afford the Hometroller, especially with the current exchange rate.

    I was thinking of a fanless/diskless unit so as to aid reliability.

    However I know absolutely nothing about hardware. Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Thanks

      I have a good friend who trades old/used kit on ebay.

      Have a search for the seller GREATIT (lousy name.. I know!) and see what he has.

      He sells many desktops and real servers, as well as often having low power pc devices such as OEM firewalls etc that are not too dissimilar to the Hometroller hardware spec.

          I am currently running Homeseer on one of these:
          http://linitx.com/viewproduct.php?prodid=11721

          with 1 gb of ram and a 30gb SSD
          http://www.ocztechnology.com/product...ata_ii_2_5-ssd

          Not the cheapest hardware, but it gives me a system with no moving parts and it only consumes 12-15W of power.

          There are people I beleve using the eee box as a Homeseer server which at about 200GBP is good value. Not sure what it performs like though.
