[OT] servers -- Dell vs. Compaq

I've been running 8 Compaq servers for over 4 years, 24-7 and haven't had a
single minute of...<knock, knock>...you know what I mean. Very, very
dependable.

However, I recently configured a Vantage replacement server with Compaq that was
approximately $8K. I ended up buying a Dell (they are pricing servers VERY
aggressively now according to my account rep) that was comparably priced for
$3.5K. For us, Compaq has a proven track record and I could have probably
justified a 20-30% price premium. But not over 100%!

We'll see if this cost saving pays off in the long run.

Any debate on the virtues or woes of Compaq Vs. Dell?
