How much did you pay for it? I ended up getting a Gen8 for $349 and I'm going to upgrade the cpu later to the Xeon E3 when its affordable. Right it'll make for a perfect FreeNAS box as a backup to my ISCSI Promise Raid

Yup, typical Amazon.  I received a laptop yesterday from them and it came in a box that could have held 10 of those laptops and had about 30 feet of those inflatable air packages filling the gaps.  

 

They could greatly decrease their operating costs if they learned how to package things efficiently.

If they're like sites over here. it's packed by robots so everything ends up in the same box.

though the robots aren't usually used for bigger items like that, and they're usually shipped in their regular manufacturer box. most manufacturers double box anyway, with  grey shipping box outside the actual box. The robots also don't do airbags, they use a shrink wrap plastic to hold the items down to the bottom of the box.

I thought this was going to be one of warwagon's guessing games again, but then I noticed that he wasn't the OP. :laugh:

total (vat, shipping and price) was 202€; quite cheap because the same server but diskless and with even less memory is on sale in my own country for almost double of what i paid for.

Anyways i think the Gen8 is overkill for must of the people and the price isn't quite attractive. Also i'm not gonna use RAID but disk pooling.

I agree with you. I looked for a N54 and found one for 299 and 399. Comparatively the Gen8 looked better to me. I plan on setting the raid card to JBOD and using ZFS. I plan on running FreeNAS on it right away.
