    2008 xserve for sale. Top spec available on this model. Purchased late last year with it proposed to be my HT server, DVD/BD rip machine and manage home automation in my soon to be first home.

    However SWMBO intervened and it was knocked on the head ("What do you want a server for?")

    Anyway now its been sat in the loft 6 months and so I'm looking to get rid while it still has some value and because it takes up loads of space with its box too.

    Serial is ck825027x8s to look up the full spec, but as its BTO I have attached a picture of the pullout showing the spec.

    I bought an official Apple GT120 for the extortionate price of £100 so I could run it on El Capitan - this is excluded from the sale but is available for an extra £50.

    RAID battery not working - but unless you're running this in a very high pressure environment, its not needed. It has dual PSUs, all the battery does is ensure the last bits of data get written if you have a complete power failure.

    Postage not included in prices here so please account for the weight involved if you do want it posted.

    If no interest on here it will go on eBay.

    Price and currency: £250
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: PPG/BT
    Location: Hertford
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere
    Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

    Thank you. I'll do a bit of research, especially around case depth. I have a rack but it's a little shallow. How noisy is this running?? Delta screamer or a bit quieter?

    It's the only one I've heard, it's like an old school desktop. Or a tower Mac Pro with fans on fast.

    I'm afraid right now I'm nowhere near what would be seen as a 'reasonable' offer
