    We have two choices: either go w/ a vendor that has this ability (Dell outsources this service also) or buy spare parts to have on hand if we run into any issues.

    So, it will depend on the pricing we can get w/ or without support.

    thx,

    SW

    Contact Chong at http://www.apaqdigital.com. Great servers at an excellent price. I prefer his servers to the Dells we have.
