  1. blade servers tend to be cheaper for each server, once the enclosure is bought but that basically means the cost comes out the same. blades give you a higher rack density, you are sharing power modules for the whole enclosure. blade enclosures are easier to manage as a single unit with common monitoring software, kvm etc... and then once you start adding switching modules, you start to get some more advantages regarding saving space, cable management etc...
  2. Yip that is correct all in all the major benefits are the fact that they are space saving easier to maintain, and easier to use or manage the main benefit is the fact about being able to easily install and run a KVM switch between the servers.
