Alex (et al)

I disagree with this based on my personal experience.
Four years ago I bought a Dell Dimension, I have it going probably 12
hours per day for business. It, too, has performed flawlessly for 4
straight years with zero problems. Finally, at 4 years it is starting
to have some problems-slowing down, stalling a lot more. I'm good at
tweaking it, keeping it clean, tracking down problems with it, and
with all that it's still finally in need of replacement. I am so
impressed with Dell that I am ordering a new one.
