My experience with Dell is they are not reliable as well.

Half way between the big guys and home built.  I've had good success
with Monarch Computers.  They've had ads in Linux Journal for a while
and a couple of their boxes have been reviewed there. As a matter of
fact, in the December issue, they did a review of a dual operton from
Monarch.
