This site http://www.siliconmechanics.com/ seems pretty good, anyone have
any experience with them? Admittedly I've not bought anything from them
but the hardware I checked is all compatible with FreeBSD and the site is
a good deal cleaner and easier to use than most that I've been to. Their
prices seem very reasonable as well.
I've been looking at getting this  model in particular but I won't
actually be buying for another 6 months or so when I finally get out of
Iraq so the model very well may change.
