Hello all, I am wanting to get a new computer to run the media 100 844/x but worried as to which systems would help.
has anyone tried any other computers while running the media 100??? right now I am using an hp xw8000 workstation.
any recomenndations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance...

The last box approved was the HP xw8200. Check out the specs for that and work from there. It's tough to get an old model of that machine now, as the newer ones have PCIe and not enough of the right slots to hold the 844/X hardware.

Sorry I don't have a definitive answer, but I hope it's of some use.

The XW8000 was the last approved box for the 844/x. Right after Optibase canceled the 844/x project we discovered a blocking issue with the XW 8200 where you would crash when you went into acquire mode. With the project canceled we could do nothing except make sure customers stayed off those machines.
