  3. I've been here since the beginning, and have seen vendors come and go.
    A mature product team and support team would be my recommended #1 reason
    to select a vendor.

    The bad ones throw together great hardware on paper, but when it comes
    down to it they didn't test their system enough and certainly don't have
    anyone who can support it on the phone. It's easy to throw together
    sexy MCE machines that work 75% of the time.

    The good ones have had several MCE revisions, have a support staff who
    really know how to support you, and have been around with MCE for a long
    time. Their machines work 99% of the time.

    Based on that, I would recommend HP and then Gateway. I've owned both
    and thought they were great.
