I second all of this.  I am writing this on a Thinkpad that I bought used
from a semi-reputable shop.  IBM was SUPER easy to work with when I had
problems (/right/ after I bought it).  IBM likes to do return to depot,
whereas Dell sends a dude ( :-P ) out with a part.  That might be an issue
for some people.

Dell, IMNSHO, really took their eye off the ball in terms of support in
mid '98 when the stock stopped skyrocketing.  Sad, really.
