Default Small Form Factor PCs w/ Serial & RAID

Hey guys,
Perhaps someone can help me and give me some suggestions. I'm looking for a place I can order a large number of decently powerful small form-factor PC that looks good. A couple of things it needs to have though; It needs to have at least one serial port, preferably two, and it NEEDS to have at least RAID 1.
I can find boxes with the serial, but the RAID is whats getting me.
Any suggestions or leads would be greatly appreciated.

Shuttle SN25P

Socket 939 mobo (AMD CPU)
1 serial port (might be able to add 1 in the PCI slot.

The only downside for this box for you is that it is barebones, so you have to buy CPU, RAM, and video card.

I had actually considered that one as its pretty much what we're looking for. But when I suggested it my boss said he didn't want me sitting around building up boxes all day. We need something already set up with all of those things, which is the ***** of it. Thanks though.

Hah, we move a lot of these units you'd a whole lot of work to do. And would need to provide pretty good support too. My boss is very picky about the projects that I work on. Anything he thinks is below me he wants someone else to do, and apparenly building systems like that is. So you'd need to provide a good warranty. =P
