What is the best place to find MTBF stats for HP Hardware

Does anyone know a website where I can find out MTBF stats for HP hardware (HP proliant components specifically)

I think you'll only find that info published for the hard disks that they use.

MTBF stats wanted as looking at keeping current systems live until 2017 and possibly until 2022, therefore need to estimate spares required to be held whilst they are still available.

Its probably cheaper to factor in a technology refresh (hardware swap and s/w qualification) every 3 years, rather than trying to hang onto h/w that will be obsolete within a year (Consumer PC's 6 months, Professional PC's 18 months if you are lucky). Most companies refresh their servers on a 3 year cycle, mid to high range external storage between 5 and 7 years.
Well, it certainly cuts down on the electric bill :)
