We have been running HP Vectras in a public library setting since 1993 
and they are, hardware wise, VERY reliable.  Our Vectras take a pounding 
every day and although we occasionally have to replace a keyboard or 
mouse, the main components, CPU, monitor, and hard drives, are still 
purring along.  We also use HP lan cards, HP servers, and HP hubs, and 
they too have continued to run with no problems.
