I'm pretty sure it *has* been mentioned. I can't speak to today, but 4
years ago the company I worked with had Dell Inspirons, and I was less
than happy with them for the same reason. They were all running WinNT
with SPs through 5. WinNT has, of course, been known to crash, but the
Inspirons seemed to have a good deal more trouble.
