Online retailers leak two HP's EX470, EX475 MediaSmart Home Servers

Microsoft's Windows Home Server (WHS) platform has gotten a lot of praise from the online community in the past few months. Microsoft dished out a Release Candidate version of the software to testers in early June and went gold in mid-July.

Since that time, we've gotten a glimpse at Velocity Micro's entry into the WHS market. Velocity's Micro's system can be mounted vertically or horizontally and will feature a Conroe-based processor. Other features include PCIe-based GbE, 3.0Gbps SATA and an eSATA port for external storage expansion.

Hewlett-Packard's offering has been shown in pictures ever since WHS was first announced in January, but specifications and release details have finally be revealed. According to leaks from online retailers Amazon.com and PCMall.com, HP's MediaSmart Home Server will begin shipping on September 15.

The system will be priced at $599 for the EX470 (500GB) and $749 for the EX475 (1TB). The servers are powered by a 1.8GHz AMD Sempron processor and come equipped with four drive bays for internal storage expansion (one bay is filled in the 500GB model, two in the 1TB model), four USB 2.0 ports and one eSATA port for external expansion.

Each measures 5.5" x 9.7" x 5.5" with system weight coming in a 14.92 pounds.

As we come closer to the official launch of Windows Home Server, we are sure to see more product leaks and announcement from other key partners including Fujitsu-Siemens, Gateway, Iomega LaCie and Medion.
