Compaq's are very reliable.

Advantages: Good Solid reliable computer

Compaq EN Series

Advantages: Support, ease of maintenance, advanced diagnostics
Disadvantages: Can be slightly slower

These PCs may not be lightning fast but then they're not meant to be. Not to say they're slow just not as fast as the fastest available. Where they excel is support and ease of maintenance. I have had occasion to log fault calls with Dell, HP and Comp ...

HP ProLiant DL360G3

Advantages: Maximum power, minimal rack space
Disadvantages: No external SCSI connector
