hi!
i want to prepare for Server 2003 certfications and have
read the specifications for eveluation pack of Server
2003. it says min req is 133 MHz/ 128 RAM processor but
recommended is 733 MHz/ 254 RAM. i will have to buy one.

i have questions:

1) is P3 477 MHz/ 256RAM a good enough option?

2) does it make any diffrence if i use laptop for the
purpose?

your answers will help me a lot!

It will function on that system,but I wouldn't call it running.
You can get by with a lot by adding memory.

Laptops are fine--I run 2003 enterprise on mine.It is handy to have a
preconfigured server to jack into networks for diagnostics.

Thanks for your advice, it has really helped me clear
about options in hand.

desktop. i'm good to go!
thanks again!!

laptop won't matter. you are not using it as a real server. you are just
playing around with it.

P3 might be okay. i would beef up the ram if you got it. 512 at least. but
try it. worst that will happen is it will crawl on you.

I have a production 2003 server with only 256 MB Ram and it's performance is
not noticeably worse than when it ran NT4.
P3 477 MHz/ 256RAM will be plenty for testing on.
