RE[6]: I did my homework

We could play the same game, I can find a few random internet posts complaining about the build quality (or technical problems with Linux) of either Lenovo or Dell laptops. And I can use those posts to tell you that their products are terrible and that you should instead buy brand XXX.

In fact, chances are that there are orders of magnitude of those posts than System 76. Given the larger market share and customer base of either of those brands.

I'm not endorsing any brand, just pointing out the fallacious nature of the argument.
