For Sale: Dell T310 Server with 20GB RAM

I am looking to upgrade my home lab, but I need to see if there is anyone interested in buying my Dell T310 first.  It is just over a year old, but will ship with the 20GB of ram.  I will want to keep the SATA drives so I can re-use them.  If you are local I could deliver it, but if I need to ship it that will have to be calculated.  Below are the specs on the System and it is still under DELL Warranty.

Asking Price – $1200 plus any shipping

CPU – X3450, 2.66/4.8, 8MB, Xeon Unitary Lynnfield, B1 (Single Socket Capable Only)
Memory – 16GB Crucial DIMMs and 4GB DELL DIMMs
Hard Drives – Not Included (On board SATA Controller)
Warranty – Intact and would transfer the Service Tag

Basically you are getting an empty chassis with a CPU and RAM to get you started.  This is the same box I used to build my vCloud in a Box lab I posted about last year. If you are interested contact me and we can work it out.  I would like to firm up a buyer so I can order something else a little larger for my lab.  I can only ever support a single physical server based on space so let me know.
