RCS is partial to Dell. If you’re looking to have a support contract on the computers, Dell is usually pretty good about it.
If the plan would be to have shelf spares of critical components and manage all support needs internally, I’d probably opt to build them myself.
The latter option will save money, but will require more man hours. The former will cost more, but will require less man hours. I think the size of the operation
and the size of the support staff (particularly the workload-to-staff ratio) would be a key factor in determining which route to take.
Just my 2¢
