If you want more accurate replies, you need to specify what kind of software you are using to what kind of tasks. And if you are buying it with budget in mind.


I can say that someone using just Excel and tools for HR/marketing needs quite different machine from someone doing 3D, photo editing or such.

Get a new Dell and buy the 3 year support pack as well. (depending on your hardware refresh schedule you may want to get extended support). It's worth the money because it is for a business and you are currently down a PC which will cost more in a day that the support pack costs for 3 years. 


I have a Precision 5820 and it's an excellent machine for work, although I upgraded the CPU, RAM and SSD when it was bought and it was a bit pricey it was totally worth it for my use case. I can't recommend any other manufacturer because only Dell has the support that a business needs. HP support sucks balls, they don't vet their repair partners as well and HP are a replacement service rather than a repair service (Dell will send out a tech with the parts you need and do an onsite repair, even for cosmetic damage).


If you have the inhouse skills and budget for spares then self building is always an option, it saves money and you get better performance, but you need to have spare parts in stock at all times in order for it to make business sense.
