I hope the support they give enterprise customers is better than their
retail customer support.  My experience with Compaq technical support
is absymal.  I had one of their tech support drones tell me that "the
hard drive sees everything on the computer" and that it had to be
"replaced" every time anything on the computer was changed.  Load of
BS.  I had to bring an attorney in to the picture to get them to
finally replace a defective Presario laptop (four trips to their
repair shop, each time they broke something new).
