Nice Rack!

Now this is what I’ve been wating for – a rackmountable Mac OS X server:

While the spec is truly awesome, the key feature for me is to be able to build and deploy my web work as usual on the PowerBook and have it developed and deployed on the same OS, rather than porting it up to Linux or FreeBSD as I currently do. While Apple is clearly targeting this hardware at their core markets, video, graphics, education, and scientific, it does really appeal to me: the Mac-wielding webmaster with a budget. I’m seriously evaluating this as a viable option to my current Linux hosting situation.
