    Default HP NetServer LD Pro.

    I just had someone bring me a HP NetServer LD Pro.

    Huge beast, this one has 1 Pentium Pro 200MHz, 64Meg of ram, and 2 9GB SCA Scsi Drives.
    It has EISA and PCI slots.


    Does anyone remember these beasts, or have any interest in this one?


    Big for a computer, not quite large enough for a end table.

    Below is a pic I found of the same one on the web.

    That's a very nice looking machine. I bet it ways a ton.

    I've had one briefly. It's a nice EISA machine if you are running multiple CPU's but yeah they're just.....big.
    At the time I threw in the best video hardware I had in the thing and tried passing it off as a professional x86 deskside workstation. Ran CAD and 3DS fine but my SGI's were competing for the same floorspace.
    = Excellent space heater

    I have an HP Netserver (dual P2 I think) and like the construction of it. The one pictured looks like it takes up quite a bit of space. My unit sits in the furnace room collecting dust next to an equally large HP MO jukebox I don't have room to setup at the moment.
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems

    Oh, I've always wanted one! I love those superwide server designs. I've got a E800, though that's a later - Dual P3 - system and somewhat more svelte.

    I've always thought they seemed like good machines to use for hosting a network and loads of files from and have been trying to find an LH Pro, this one's bigger brother, for just that reason.

    They definitely are cool looking systems! Even if they do take up the space of a minifridge and use twice the power
