If you get all IBM equipment, you stand a MUCH better chance of being able to
isolate hardware problems when diagnostics doesn't find any problems (is it the
adapter? the disk? the cable? the machine? the tower?)
I've been on both sides of the fence -- I worked for IBM and now I'm a
customer, and I still prefer to go all IBM. It's worth the cost when you have
critical systems and critical data.
