There are a lot of opinions out there of which hardware vendors are good and which are not. What are the best hardware vendors to trust for company use?
- Server-grade: esp. harddrives and backup solutions
- Desktop-grade: any/all components but esp. focused on common desk workers though that are using MS Office, the web, a few internal apps, and little else. Not graphic designers, developers, or power users -- their needs are too specialized for something like this
My company (and I assume we're not unique) focuses on desktops being middle of the road but reliable. Downtime is very very bad -- time is money. Likewise with server grade stuff although they're more willing to spend some real money on quality servers.
This is not intended to start a war or be argumentative If you have real information or experience please share. And please support it with FACTS when possible
