There a new version of Check Point Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) available.We have a better usability as you can filter the list with various options, like vendor or date of certification.The list for the certified systems in the last year is rather short but has the most important vendors listed.
When it comes to choosing a system I would go for Dell or HP. Maybe some day I will post about my favorite hardware configuration.
Please just don’t have a look at the list itself but follow the link to the specific system as well. There you will find more information about hardware configuration and some times also limitations or recommendations specific to this hardware. Import for getting the hard drive controller operating or for getting network interface cards to work.
