I'm thinking about having the PC be an IBM PC, would that make you
guys happier than say a DELL or HP?

Normally we have ours custom built be a local expert shop, we do
that because we offer swapout maintenance, and the 'brand'names
don't hold up[ as well. ( we don't use the cheap ....)

I never know what kind of IBM partner I am, they always change the
plans right about the time I figure them out. I know I get PWD
mailings all the time, and I joined at one point.
