Don't be silly, Dell isn't that bad. They make some very nice laptop hardware, for instance. I just got an Inspiron, for instance, that's nicer than the Thinkpad I had at my last job.
I have a Dell XPS 15 (the only laptop with a non-1366x768 display I could find here in Brazil - the other choices would be from Apple, whose Brazilian operation is known for overpricing stuff, or gamer stuff which I don't need/want).
Not much to complain about it, really: almost everything worked out-of-the-box on Linux (except for the 'hybrid graphics' bullshit which requires a little hacking to get going, and the card reader - which I don't use that much - which won't automount until you run a command, then it works until the next reboot).
Of course, YMMV, the plural of anecdote isn't data, yada yada yada.
Just because next year your country will legalize having sex with sheep, cows, babies, and any small creature that moves doesn't make it right today, ( or tomorrow for that fact).
Slippery slope anyone?
... Apple finds a loophole and sues this developer into oblivion?
...if only there was a similar situation we could use to predict how it might go.
But Apple has enough money to turn the development of this into hell.
