Article was decent, thanks for posting to it HFadeel. The author did not mention anything about refurbished hardware. Usually 2-3 months after the newest generation is released to the public you can purchase refurb hardware from companies such as Dell, HP, Sun, and IBM. We started doing that at our datacenter last year after all the layoffs to save money, just bought refurb HP G5's. And about a month ago we ordered a few G6's. The hardware always runs as it would brand new and is certified (plus warranty!) by those companies. The only downfall is if you care about cosmetics, generally the refurbs have general wear and tear of being shipped several times, some scratches, rub marks, and sometimes a front bevel might be bent a little; works nonetheless.
