Funny, it's about the exact opposite from what I've seen. 8 dead HP's (the DV series) in the last 2 months that have blown SB chips, and that all happens about a month after the warranty expires.

Don't even get me started on Toshiba's.

Acer (also Emachine and Gateway) would be one of my first choices along with a Dell if I were going to buy from a major manufacturer. My old Aspire 3010 is still kicking after about 6 years and I have never had an issue.
