I'll just hang my coat up, it's too warm here.
Lenovo reckons its data centre range has never had a refresh quite like it: 25 new products, a couple of new brands and a new CPU to play with as well. The CPU is Intel's forthcoming Xeon Scalable Family, about which we're all more or less in the dark. So move along, nothing to see here until it debuts in a month or three. …
We had to reapply the thermal paste on about 80% of the CPUs we checked because it was only covering 1/4-1/2 of the CPU. That was after the warranty service guy fixed one by applying so much it was like he'd tried to putty an old window frame. Oh, after we waited 10 days on a 4-hour warranty.
Fuck them. By this point, I'd rather have Packard Bell, AST, Gateway 2000 or one of the other old stalwarts from years ago.
