Everyone I know with Dell's has had to get them serviced, even people I know who leave them
> on their desks 90% of the time. 

This doesn't bode well for me then, as I am just going on year 3 of my
Dell Laptop which has quite literally been around the world several
times, as well as a huge amount of domestic travel.  I used to dual
FreeBSD and Windoze, but have been exclusively BSD for almost a year. 
Sound, wireless, ethernet, APM, video, ports, etc all work great.  

The only "real" problem I have encountered is my docking station, which
has been a pain in the ass to configure docked/undocked in X.  Also, the
battery no longer holds a suitable charge after docking with the batter
still engaged.  I dont know if other brands of laptops and their
respective means of docking have the same issues or not, but it is worth
considering.
