"I disagree.  Dell will bite you in the ass on "special" parts (like
"drive brackets, and little OEM-invented FRUs) far less often than
"HewletDECompaqard.  Compaq also likes to make lots of their own parts,
"which makes compatibility a hell once Compaq thinks you need to upgrade.
"Dell mainly just rebadges stuff.

which reminds me -- i'm on the lookout for an intel db440fx mb.  i've
got this friend, see...

all these folks - yes, even noble hp, and also the likes of gateway -
used intel oem mb from time to time.  this is going back a few years
to the '97/98 time frame, but would anyone know how to find out which,
if any, used the db440fx?  it was in the lpx [ltx?] form factor with
the bus riser card, and it was intel's last in that line.  obviously
used the intel 440fx chipset, and took a slot 1 cpu.
