Talk:School Server Specification
Use eSata as the way of adding external storage.
It is way faster, cheaper and more reliable that USB.
It is pretty new but should be mature by the School servers are deployed in numbers.
Has anyone considered using this for the school servers? http://www.fit-pc.com/new/index.php
Low power consumption, water/dirt resistant, and seemingly powerful enough for this application. Would just have to be outfitted with a wireless adapter.

 Update the Hardware Spec?
It is my perception that OLPC no longer intends to use the XO as a server. Whoever is responsible pls update this page with what OLPC currently intends to use for the hardware.
