We are looking to buy new workstations for replacing exisitng P4 and for our new ICT suites. HP DC7900 looks great...
Any other PCs you are using or would recommend.

We got 70 DC7800s at Xmas and have been delighted with them. A slight downside is the external psu whuch is a bit bulky but we have ours underneath the benches.
The only thing to go wrong so far is a faulty psu. A replacement was shipped from Germany and arrived the next morning.
We've supplied a few EduGeekers with the HP DC7900 desktops, all have been very impressed with them. If you require a competitive quote or any references from customers using these then give me a shout.
i would recommend the HP DC7900, we went for the USDT small factor version and fix them to the HP workstation stand to keep them nice and neat.
we have about 50 in use at the moment with another 25 arriving next week. not looking to change at the moment!
We've got DC7900s here; they work well. The quad core machines are very fast!
Another HP 7000 series user here, got some nice ones coming next week that are for our Media Studies department and should be ace stuff for them I hope, much better than the existing PCs that should on paper work well but are a bag of spanners!
I have about 3 different types of the 7000 series and all of them go like the clappers and seem to be going down well with the users which is great
Another HP fan here, I love 'em
The best suite we have in the school are all dc7700, a little old now but still really good. A lot of staff (particularly the IT team ) have dc7800s and are really pleased with them, although we don't tend to buy the ultra small ones as it's a pain having the external PSU. We'd rather just have a bigger box!
Having said that, if you do get the ultra small option, the stand you can get is pretty solid and holds the PC as well as any monitor you want to use with a VESA mount.
All our new IT rooms have the ultra small DC models mounted with 19" widescreen tfts. Very nice machines. The power bricks are irritating though as we have to have them on the desk with the computer.....
Thank You for all your post guys... we were going for HP 7900 just making sure... that we have 7700 and 7800 in school and works great...
Just so you know, we have the E5200 version starting at around £370.00+VAT and the
E8400 version starting at £455.00+VAT
Please get in touch if you require a comparitive quotation
You tried dell optiplex? They're fairly awesome. Never gone wrong, and quite fast. Tough we also do stones, not as good, but best warranty ever. Bloke always pops up with parts the next business day.
