Did Dell Dig Its Own Ditch?

Dell's share is falling, and its reliability is worse than that its competitors' -- coincidence? Once again, as Denis Leary would say, "I DON'T THINK SO!"

Word gets around as to what works, and what breaks. Dell is a superb company, but if I was spending my own money (as opposed to Redmond magazine's cash) I'd shy away from the dudes from Dell. I've had too many of their machines, and too many motherboard replacements. Of course, I'm saving my change for a Mac laptop. I'm waiting for Leopard and Vista to both ship and I'll be dual-booting in style.
