AMD Opteron powered Dell PowerEdge server (PE1435 and PE6950). Strange they don't release comparable server line on PE19xx/PE29xx. The pricing is not attractive yet as Dell is not doing any promotional discount on the PE1435/PE6950 (unlike PE1950/PE2950).
AMD powered Dell servers might be a hot issue few months back/few years back, but with Intel Woodcrest outperforms Opteron in price, power usage, and performance, any reason why one would want AMD powered Dell servers?
I am going with Intel.

The latest Virtuozzo kernel builds should boot on the Woodcrest motherboards out there. I had the same problem with the e1000 driver, and had to compile it on my own. Latest kernel revision has it built right in, though.
