[Oliver Peters] "Unfortunately for pro users there are three "sort-of" reliable, mainstream vendors: Apple, Dell and HP. Discounting a slew of no-name PCs, Hackintoshes and maybe Lenovo, this doesn't bode well for companies that rely on that class of machine in the future. I suspect the iMac design model (as well as the HP Z1) might be something developers will increasingly embrace simply out of self-preservation."

There are a few more players to consider, I think. Boxx, Promax and SuperMicro immediately come to mind. I don't doubt that the market for high-end, Xeon based workstations is shrinking, but I do believe that smaller systems integrators will serve those who need that kind of power on the desktop for a long time to come. Just my opinion. :-)
