HP has this week published a documents detailing the full specs of their forthcoming ProLiant MicroServer N54L refresh. Check out what’s new!

The document confirms the expected move to an AMD Turion II Neo N54L processor, running at 2.2 GHz. Two DIMM memory slots are available – 2 and 4 GB models will be available at launch, however the system is upgradable to 8GB RAM. Unfortunately, there is still only the limited offer of RAID 0 or 1 storage management and the USB ports remain at USB 2.0 rather than an update to USB 3,0.

So, an incremental update of the platform, but good news for MicroServer fans all the same.

UK pricing has been set at £269 ex VAT for the 2GB model, and £309 ex VAT for the 4GB version.
