IBM, Sun and HP have their fairly pricey Opteron systems.
The IT people are not swell about unsupported purchases off ebay.


I certainly understand your concern, but the price and support sometimes go hand-in-hand. You may have to pick your batttles if your want more bang for the buck or more support. I might be wrong on this, but not everything you buy on E-Bay is unsupported.

We purchase a dual Operton from Sun off their E-Bay store for about $3K less than the "buy it now" price.

From an IT perspective, support is not as critical if I can do it myself. If it is for business 24/7 operations, then the company should be able to put some money behind what they want to put their business on. Your mileage may vary.
