Give Dell a look. I presently own four of them. I just donated an older one when I upgraded and it had never given me any trouble. That's 5 for 5. They're also well priced.

Seven is as rock solid as they come. It will take quite an act for me to consider upgrading from it. As someone previously said, only if I buy a new machine. All my machines are < 2 years old so I...

Yeah, good choice. My machine is a Dell Inspiron 1545 (that I've had for about 21 months). I never regretted this one. Fine for software development and anything other than high-performance video...
