Feedback on the HP Z800 Workstation

Asked by Kwesi Davis on 2012-01-27

I am not having any success building a Z800 Workstation that exactly matches the following specs:
http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/hardware/201011-6754

Niether "Best Buy" nor "HP" will sell me the E5520. Only the E5620 is available.

HP also will not sell me the Quadro FX 1800.

I tried contacting your partners at CSS Corp (www.csscorp.com), but they don't respond to email.

It would be great if you could, in addition to posting the certified specs, post a reseller who will build the computer to match your specs. I would love to use your OS but it is not practicle for me to buy a $3,000 machine that might not work on your OS.

Can you point me to a reseller who will build a certified machine (or post a more flexible certification for the z800)?

Thanks,
Kwesi Davis

I'm sorry, but we have no idea who would do this. We can only certify hardware that OEM's ask us to certify and provide us with access to a system to do the certification on. I looked on HP's UK website, though I guess you're in the US? They no longer seem to sell this exact specification so it seems you might be stuck. We don't have any control over availability either.

Can you help with this problem?
