This was long time ago (10 years is long time in computer history), and Dell is more trustable now (except for the nVidia chips issue which happened a few years ago).

But if you're not sure, you can still buy the machine with the longest warranty, with quick replacement options. I believe it costs ~$300 for 5 years of service.
