Subject: Comments on HP Compaq dc5800

If anyone who has experience with an HP Compaq dc5800 would like to
briefly comment on their experience with this computer I would greatly
appreciate it. 

We have been purchasing Dell Optiplexes for the last few years and have
had good luck with them in terms of durability and imaging, but our most
recent Dell quote was higher than this model, so I need to consider the
HP. (The dc8550 with an AMD processor came in even lower.) The
Optiplexes are easy to work on (no tools) and have a solid kid-proof
