Anyone running blade servers? I have a old Dell poweredge 2450 that I'm going to be basically throwing away soon(or play with my welder with :p). I've seen videos of those newer dell blades that are so much smaller and lighter and can fit 10 to a chassis that could be used as a standalone or with a dell rack. I think my dual PIII 600mhz 2450 has outlived it's usefullness(haven't used it for a few years,just sitting there lol)

My poweredge(more like a server) was not a blade and it's already been carted off(huge and heavy and was over 10 years old),the newer blades that I've seen on youtube like the 1855 might be something I might get in the future.My wife hated that poweredge since it took up so much room lol

Yea it wasn't worth it to keep anymore I ran freebsd on it and it did ok,but huge and a pain in the butt to even haul around,I still love dell servers and as they keep making those blades even smaller in size it's going to be a nice benefit to me and avoid my wife's iron skillet as well :p
