I've been recommending Dell systems to clients for several years.
Definitely go through the small business channel, and invest in a 3
year warranty for any notebook.

I've read some of the other comments in this thread. The important
things to consider:

- Application availability
- Warranty
- Support
- Cost

Take a hard look into the immediate future and fill in the details. My
experience tells me that you may be better off having what your client
has, for reasons of support and connectivity.
