So far HP seems to be giving me the best deal. Does anyone have any experience with these workstations? How is HP support?

Yes - I use HP Xeons at work - several 440 and an 840. They are maxed out and have been uniformly horrible. They're all running Quadro cards and the computers just don't seem to get on with them. I'm no IT expert but I'm no cretin with them either. I tried everything I could on my main machines to get them running without the constant crashes and glitches before I flicked them back to our IT guys and ultimately back to the company we get them off. They've had all sorts done to them and are still the most flakey computers I've used in decades. Maybe they just don't like our corporate image and network. Whatever, I'm in the process of shifting everything back to Mac :(

Wow that is discouraging to hear. I am also looking at Lenovo as I have had good luck in the past with them. I was told by HP I could not add the iStar unit so I am looking at my other options. I think I prefer the Xeon W series anyway.
