Dell Servers amd workstations

By pmnettis ·
We are considering Dell computers for our servers that include san's and standalone member servers running win 2000 (60 servers in all)
the desktops 700 plus will be running xp professional.

I cam from a long line of compaq, Hp and IBM productsfrom the last 20 years and wondering if I should go with dell's. Dell seems to undercut every price i got from competitors.
Price is one thing but performance and reliability is my main concern. We keep out pc's over 5 years and more before a refresh happens. I still have hp P90's on the floor.
does Dell still have its little quirks and problems like before. Desktop loads are all ghosted and ws are locked down heavily.
Where can I find know problems with manufactures like dell running ios specific to the manufacturer?

We were about 100% Compaq as well, but have already been going the Dell route. Personally, I have had no problems with Dell. They have a great product and very good service. I have about 10 of their servers running and have never had a problem, except for one bad motherboard (but they sent a tech out next day to my location). Obviously, they can be more proprietary...so I would check into the different wks models to see which ones are less proprietary. Of course, all pc manufacturers are going this route. Dude, your getting a Dell:)

Dell seems to be on a mission lately. Their products and support have been excellent.

I know from a friend on mine that the City of Memphis is using them in their engineering department with no complaints.

The dealings I have had with them has been excellent.

Hope this helps
