"Toshiba on Monday launched a new Linux-based, special-purpose server that it hopes will attract business customers and home networking enthusiasts."
"The Magnia SG10 costs $1,289 to $1,799 depending on how much hard disk capacity is included, but Toshiba hopes to make money by selling services such as online server status monitoring and data backup, said Brian Foster, Toshiba's senior product manager for servers and business development."
"The SG10 has seven ports to connect PCs and another to connect to a broadband Internet connection. It can house a Web page and host e-mail, and with an upgrade can serve as the hub of 802.11b or Bluetooth wireless networks. The machine, based on a 350MHz AMD K6-2 processor with 64MB of memory, uses the Red Hat 6.1 Linux operating system, Foster said."
