Hewlett Packard’s MediaSmart Home Server, pictured here, made a brief blip on the internet radar recently when it showed up and quickly disappeared from various online stores (it’s still up on Amazon, however).
It’ll apparently be available to ship on September 15th and there will be two models available, a 500GB version for $599 and a 1TB version for $749. Each will have an AMD Sempron processor running at 1.8GHZ.
Other hardware partners include Fujitsu-Siemens, Gateway, Iomega, Lacie, and Medion so we might expect to see a wider variety of systems becoming available in the not-too-distant future. See our previous Windows Home Server post for a brief overview of what it can do.
