Let's not turn every post in the hardware area into a disagreement there are already to few a posts as is. The point of the initial post is arriving at a goal I would think. Is it what's under the hood or the project.
I have never had a return in 17 years on any computer purchased. The support has been superlative even though I rarely need it. Most major companies don't build with the goal of it coming back on higher end models. Most CD drives lasted about 5 years. I don't buy to find out the failure rate it takes a lot of research to avoid that.
You tell me if you're doing your research. I have seen very few who beat me on price and quality.
