You can narrow things down for instance you could start with warranty and support. Location is a factor too. You want every kind of stability, reliable power, cold water and to be near your suppliers, factoring in airports or interstate highways.

I'm not sure if Power or ARM (yet) qualify for a general HPC workload

available for x86-64 these days. MATLAB dropped PowerPC support back in
2007 for instance.
All the best,
