Where/When to purchase Server w/ SBS 2011 Essentials installed?

I wish to upgrade our SBS 2003 server with new server with SBS 2011 Essentials installed. Had the impression that this would be rolled out by OEM's around May 1 2011. Still nothing as far as I know. Chatted with Dell yesterday about a month ago and that's the date they suggested. Yesterday they said not until 9/1/2011.  Would prefer staying with Dell hardware but not wedded to them. Any suggestions?

    SBSe has been released, but OEMs can set their own timetable for supporting and preinstalling OEM versions. You can always buy a bare server and buy SBSe retail (which I prefer anyways) and get going nearly immediately.
