If they're lucky, it would be Las Cruces (my home town so I'm prejudiced).

Further away from El Paso? Do they make you stay in Van Horn?

Paul,

We use Lenovo's for our laptops. IBM comes out and replaces parts on those
when they go bad (if they're still under warranty). I know they handle some
of the blade centers other related peripherals. Not sure if they handle the
HP stuff.

Then again, the bean counters here are into vendor consolidation. The
theory is that if you put more of your eggs into one basket then you're a
bigger share of that person's basket and you can often get more cooperation
out of them. I've seen it carried to extreme here. For instance we now pay
much more for rooms further away from our El Paso operations (where we do
most of our travel) because we get a discount from the vendor for other
places. And again, unless you're REALLY huge (like GM or the government) is
Staples going to fear bankruptcy if we pull our business from them?

Me personally? No. Clients, yes, and I've even experienced it when I was
an
IT manager years ago.

I'm surprised they didn't have you change the batteries yourself.

Do you currently have hardware under maintenance? Is this what you are
experiencing? I'm not seeing that for a bulk of the stuff I have replaced

on my i. I do see that for tape drives though. Just had IBM out last
week to replace two disk cache batteries.
