The concept of a home server might be a tough sell when you're looking at relatively bulky, unappealing systems with price tags in the $500-700 range. The new wave of Atom-powered home servers promises to change that, however. And among those, Acer's Aspire easyStore H340 looks like a particularly interesting option.
The easyStore H340 is now available for $399.99 before shipping at Newegg, and it has a pretty well-rounded configuration: an Atom processor and matching Intel 945GC chipset, 2GB of RAM, a removable 1TB hard drive, three extra hard drive bays, Gigabit Ethernet, and Windows Home Server pre-installed.
The 8.3" x 7.8" x 7.08" enclosure also seems pleasantly compact, and it doesn't look half bad, either. Consider Windows Home Server's built-in storage redundancy and other neat features, the H340 definitely sounds like a sweet deal for 400 bucks.
