I used to only buy Dell because they honored their service contracts without a problem. My last Dell (which was probably my 8th Dell computer purchase in 8 years) was a lemon (it had most of the components replaced within the first year I owned it).

Two years into my three year on-site service contract they told me they would no longer support on-site service on my laptop because I had too many service calls. When I asked for a manager he assured me that "to serve you better - we want one of our in-house technicians at our service depot to thoroughly examine your computer to ensure you don't have any more issues" (Ya right). When it broke again, I got the same song and dance. Apparently if you need to use your service contract they down grade it without your consent or a refund. Way to go Dell.
