As reported earlier today the Apple Store went down for maintenance. It came back with two new shiny pizza boxes: the Quad-Core Xserve and 8-Core Xserve.
The new Apple servers feature the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Nehalem” processors. For $2,999 you get an Xserve with Quad-Core CPU at 2.26Ghz, 3GB RAM, 160GB SATA drive and Mac OS X Server v10.5 Unlimited-Client Edition.
The 8-Core Xserve starts at $3,599.
Apple lets you go nuts with the Xserve and offers to configure it with two quad-core processors at up to 2.93GHz, up to 24GB RAM, Hard drive storage up to 3TB, 128GB solid-state drive, Internal hardware RAID card, Dual-channel Gigabit Ethernet, Dual- or quad-channel 4Gb Fiber Channel card and Dual redundant power supplies. Just do not ask what such a tricked out Xserve is going to cost.
