Interesting, I've had my Inspiron 8500 for 2 1/2 years now. Today I poppd the K 
key off to get something out from under it (bit of fingernail it turned out) 
and broke the key. I called Dell support (smart IT manager got us gold support 
which is good until November) and they're shipping a new keyboard out.
  This laptop has been across the continent with me several times (Last spring 
I went from Halifax, NS to Mountain View, CA and back to MA in one week). I've 
dropped it, slapped it, slammed it and just plain used it hard and its never 
failed or even whimpered.

Maybe more than you know.  My experience with Dell laptops hasn't been 
They're kind of flimsy and eventually develop problems due to too much
internal flexing.  I saw this with two in a previous job, and a third 
in my
current job.  Some models in their Latitude series also go through 
and processor fans.  (Two fans under warranty, on one Latitude C600.)

These days I'll only buy IBM or Toshiba, when it comes to laptops.
