The SC440SC is mostly cheaper than every client.
It is the smallest "server" we sell.

Well, I appreciate the responses, but am truly gob smacked that Dell
could release a server, and call it a server, without the ability to
read temperature sensors. I wouldn't be able to find a desktop, let
alone a server, in this whole company that doesn't have that ability.
