An HP representative walks me through the features and functions of the new MediaSmart EX485/487 Windows Home Servers. These new servers feature a 2 Ghz Intel CPU, 2 GB of RAM, and either 750 GB or 1.5 TB worth of storage. Pricing is $549 USD and $749 respectively [Affiliate]. I have my home-built Windows Home Server, but I'm considering picking one of these up when they're released in late January. What's with the $200 price difference for a 750 GB hard drive though? I can pick up a 1 TB hard drive for $119 locally. Looks like buying the EX485 is the better choice!
