Designed as a budget, entry-level backup solution, the sub-$400 LX195 features [PDF Data Sheet] an Intel Atom 1.6GHz 230 processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, and 640GB of storage which one can swap out for a larger capacity SATA I / II drive in the future.

    it looks good, however as a FORGOTTEN first generation mediasmart server owner in the UK I have zero intention of every buying a HP WHS again…. no second generation, no s/w updates and more than likely we won’t see this also….even if it crawled or swam across the ‘pond’ i would browse it in the local PC store, but would walk away…..bitter……YOU BET!
