So want a play box for HyperV? You can actually load up 16gigs on that Microserver.

I just ordered the RAM.. haven’t done the bios hack.
These are great little boxes. I am hoping to enter my MS certifcation with the new 2012 exams, just waiting for training material to become available.
I recently purchased 2 x N40L’s with 16GB of ram, 1TB HDD’s, an extra add in NIC for my VM traffic and a gigabit switch, all for $877AUD.
I now have a quiet, low power Hyper-V home lab that I have started mucking around with (have done a few posts on my blog, although I am new to the blogging thing also, so that is a learning curve in itself!)
Love mine, using it at home for University work and teaining when I’m not in the office.
