I've had both flavors of Lenovo, the ThinkPad series is much more robust.
Apple's consumer laptops were better as well. I had those ibooks and MacBooks. They only became problematic when they were old and slow. My 8 year old macbook still works ok save the trackpad. I am too lazy to take it in to solve that problem. The trackpad started flaking out in about year 6.

Dell is not the only company to do this I am sure.
so if I bought a business pc or server and if I call dell then I would get someone on the phone from the states.I heard they outsourced them to!! all companies outsource today!!

Actually, I have read somewhere that the Dell is best in Design as compared to Toshiba. But if you go for the "reliability" then Toshiba is best. The source for reliability data is the Squaretrade reliability report. It is a company which sells laptop warranties.

According to Squaretrade's data, Toshiba is the second most reliable laptop brand in the world. Dell, on the other hand, is the fifth most reliable brand - and also the fifth least reliable brand - making the brand's reliability decisively average.
So now it's up to you which one to buy.
