HP (and again, I'm not saying they are better than anyone else, just
that I have experience of them) XW series Workstations are all
certified with RHEL, which means that Fedora will work absolutely
fine. I used an xw9300 for many years, but now the dc series desktops
have just as good bang-per-buck as anything less than an xw8000 series
machine.

HP publish a Linux Support Matrix for their Desktop and Workstation
machines and if RHEL5 is listed, Fedora will work. If there's no
certification, Fedora might still work - but I understand you are
looking for guarantees.

If you are looking for some less vendor specific recommendations, why
not have a look at the Red Hat Hardware Certification site
(https://hardware.redhat.com/) as pretty much anything that is
certified to work with RHEL will work with Fedora versions newer than
F8.
