Hi,

The advantages of using Cisco are;

1- Easy to find guides and documentation
2- Easy to find cisco certified IT resources
3- The unified solutions which are coming, so you can have one window of support

The disadvantages;

1- The shortlife of support compared to HP procurve switches which have lifetime warranty
2- Price is a huge factor

Other advantages of Cisco are:
1. Huge range of features that are often not available on most other manufacturers
2. Generally very high reliability
3. Huge installed base for easier-to-find support when you need it. Check around on EE and see how many people answer Cisco questions as opposed to questions on other brands.

Really, the only disadvantage for your requirements is price.
