Dell: 0. http://www.ibuypower.com: 1*

I put together a modestly spectacular quad-core 2.66GHz, Nvidia 8600GT 1GB DDR2, SB Audigy system for less than Dell wanted for a lesser dual-core, and they had more little perks (better speaker system, pro wiring, cold cathode lighting, shiny case, etc). I skimped on the hard drive and just got a blank formatted 160gb, since I'm 99% confident now that my hard drives are just fine and it was the motherboard on the old system that died. I'll just reformat mine, put Ubuntu Hardy on it and be sitting back on my comfortable 1TB of drive space.

Glee!


*For what it's worth, I believe that every prebuilt computer company is going to have devotees who've had no problems whatsoever, and enemies who have nothing but horror stories. There's no way for a computer to be failproof, whether it's prebuilt or homebrew. You rolls the dice and you makes your choice, and you try not to spend too much on it that you're completely screwed when it inevitably breaks down. It's just machinery.
