    Hey, why don't buy your hardware directly from the vendors ( HP / DELL / IBM ...) , that could be much cheaper, and you will have the vendor support for your machine.

    Hmm, have you looked into UK-specific vendors? There must surely be some UK vendors of server hardware.

    If you are interested in Dell servers, check out their UK site, dell.co.uk
    Not sure why you want to ship from the US to the UK, would be a lot cheaper to buy from someone shipping locally

    Exactly. Thanks for the dell.co.uk link for the OP -- I had forgotten about them.

    (The OP will need to decide what kind of hardware he wants, whether brand-name or white label.)

    Typically, Dell works out a LOT more expensive for UK pricing and there's no Supermicro vendors over here like you find in the USA is my understanding from having looked myself.

    But you can ship from another European country, that would be cheaper then from USA.
    I recommend NCS (www.ncs.nl) for Supermicro servers. they are the largest supplier in the Benelux.

    Not quite, there are a lot of SM vendors.

    If you don't want to order from Dell UK or HP UK or IBM then you could use the below. Never buy US servers and ship them over here it's a complete waste of money. Let alone taking into account power supplies and warranties.

    Just two off the top of my head:

    Don't forget that you'll have to pay import duty and VAT on the server if its shipped here. That will make it more expensive than buying in the UK.

    Never buy servers direct from Dell online, ring them up and they'll give you a better deal.
