1. They will be perfectly legal anywhere in the world as long as you don't use them in US restricted countries such as Iran
2. Features are the same. Support might be different if you require support in your local language. English speaking support is run from US although you won’t know that because you ring your local tel No. and they do all the call routing.
3. You need to check that with HP or your hardware vendor first. If HP is present in UAE then I would imagine they will have their support and distribution network there.
4. Yes you can, most online retailers sell HP hardware and MS software (try insight.com)

hope that helps

sql server - you will need to buy it from one of MS's authorised partners such as insight and others- you cannot buy it from MS directly

you can buy it online but i would suggest you to call them and order everything you need over the phone. ask for any special offer they might have
