    Soldered CPU, no ILO, no internal SD slot.

    32GB is nice, but the rest is a step back :/

    I wonder if they noted the G8 was cannibalising their entry level "real" server sales, even with the 16GB limit?

    Not really a weak point... an embedded "RAID Controller" is what it is. There's a reason there's the standard P222 option. I would imagine the Marvell controller in the G10 will be largely similar to the B120i

    Allegedly they will be just short of £400 without any 'cash back'
    IMHO I think this is a major step back, though the specs are capable for small business they have just priced themselves out of general sales for non-business.
    I'd be surprised if they have any cash back to start with, when sales start failing, then the price will come down and a cash back will be added.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they see a marked fall in sales with the new Gen10 specs and then go back to what they were doing on the next versions or the intel versions if they do a gen10 with intel chipset
