For a company ?


I'd go for the Lenovo - altho my experience with their "Next business day" support has been anything but that if anything goes wrong......... but was some time ago so hopefully theyre on top of things by now ;)

What are your requirements? 


Will you be running local SQL instances? or just processing access / excel data?
How much risk / down time are you willing to have in the event of failure? The Lenovo & HP both come with NBD on-site warranties where as the Dell being an ex-lease will have none.


If you don't need the dedicated GPU or the smaller form factor of the HP, I'd go with the Lenovo. Both the HP & Lenovo you have listed are fairly identical bar the GPU and both have the 3 year NBD warranties.

I'd take the HP personally, their business grade gear just goes forever.
