    Dell Blade Centre - HP

    Ok, stupid question, and i'm pretty sure the answer is no... but I just want to check and both Dell and HP will give predictable answers...

    We have a Dell Blade Centre which we got for free of the LEA a while back... but we've since turned to HP. Is there any way of putting HP blades in a Dell blade centre?

    My first and obvious guess is no, but I just want to make sure before we commit to buying more Dell kit.

    Cheers!

    Dont get me wrong, it's great and a very powerful peice of kit (and loud ), I have nothing against Dell's kit atall. Very good for the price. But i *hate* Dell support with a passion... hence why we're with HP. So if there is atall any way, i'd rather not deal with Dell.

    If they wont fit then fair enough, i'll go for Dell blades... but given the option, i know my choice
