Once I can't extend the warranty any more I'm going to build a desktop, I've learned my lesson; desktops are for gaming, laptops are for portability.
IMO the only good laptop from Dell now is the precision line. I have both the M6300, and M6400.
I would give the edge to the M6300 for ruggedness, but the M6400 has a few more features.
I do not like any of the present Dell inspiron, Studio or XPS lines at all - they are not High End latops.
Seems dell is leaving the gaming side of things to the Alienware division.
last - laptops are built with a 2-3 year life span in mind. as by the time two years have passed the technology has far surpassed, and unless you "stock" a large inventory of parts your not going to have the means to even repair them.
its not as easy as a desktop where you can keep some parts and drop in others
