In my experience, the terms "Dell" and "best available" very
rarely go together.
Dell has made a name for themselves by shipping the absolutely
cheapest possible hardware they can, with the thinnest possible
profit margins, and trying to make up the difference in volume.
Issues like support, ease of management, freedom from overheating,
etc... get secondary or tertiary consideration, if they get any
consideration at all.
But maybe that's just me.
