    Personally I think Dell suck, overrated, and cost a fortune to repair

    DELL PSU to fit Dell PC case cost us 80

    standard would have cost 30

    Dell printers.... poor quality and cost a fortune to replace the toner cartridge.

    And I'm not to keen on the DELL switches... had two fail in the space of 4 month.

    Xtreme Networks for Switch's!! even more so if you get the amount of discount we got lol

    But over the next few months, we will be looking at the SUN gear for Virtual Desktops etc
    Not seen anyone running the Extreme network line of switches. What sort of pricing did you get (if you don't mind me asking!). Always imagined they'd be at the high end!

    I'd have to say cisco, because they are the most diverse networking company.
    For servers and storage it has to be ibm.

    I like toshiba because i think they make good quality copiers and laptops.

    G1! Acer Aspire 1! PS3! (Those three for personal reasons obviously)

    I do like Dell & HP kit. In terms of software, my favourite piece at the moment would have to be Sony Vegas (got a lot of editing to do over summer).

    thats not quite right fella, we sell many different Dell toners which are on par with HP and the feedback we have on quality is great

    Apple, Dell & HP. Since being with the NHS a while back, now education this kit just seems to work without too many problems.

    Getting support for them is easy, pretty much next day service (I'll ignore Apple in this statement though)

    I much prefer the simple things in life like my garden, drinking a good wine and relaxing with a good film or listening to the radio. Too much technology in my opinion is around us and the majority of it is not necessary unless it's involved in a medical matter - [ like saving the life of my oldest son many years ago ]

    Bless you this made me laugh you are absolutely right when you work with technology it becomes a lifestyle! Answering the question myself my fave technology is Oki for printers, HP for PCs, Apple -my iphone :-)
    It is also so important to be able to escape from technology as well my garden, my pond sun shining and maybe a glass of pinot grecio right now aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa yes and Coral Bays beach for 2 weeks soon :-D

    Custom Spec PCs for PC's, for the fact that you know you are putting in good quality parts.

    Toshiba Laptops - Rarely had one break apart from a 5 year old one which had a few keys picked off by kids.

    Netgear / 3Com managed smart switches - fantastic set up on them, easy to use.

    xbox 360 gaming console - uber leet in terms of gameplay (better than PS3 everywhere apart from graphics).

    Call of duty 4 - best software out there, I enjoy kicking arse too much!
