Question Windows Servers

Looking for a couple of opinions. Basically we are taking some of our production boxes off managed hosting and bringing them in-house. For this I'll need to get 4 WS2003 boxes.

Now the question... Who makes the best Windows servers in terms of:

Performance

Price

&

Service

Before I joined the company we got into the sticky mess of relying on Dell for all our pc needs, so far it has worked out pretty well in terms of desktop systems of course they suck for Laptops but we do get a pretty nice discount on our orders these days. I already have 4 PowerEdge Servers running other applications and thus far I've been happy with them but before I go ahead and splash for a few more I want to be sure they are the best option. Any opinions would be helpful. Cheers.

I run 12 servers between KY and MI with both Dell and HP servers and both run well. Never had issues with them and support was 100%

Dell Poweredge series. The price is right and I rarely see issues with them.

A bit off topic perhaps but Warez as a network administrator how many Linux servers do you handle considering they have over 90% of that market.

i prefer Hp servers. IBM also makes a dependable server.
