I echo this sentiment.

In my time I have owned 3 Macs, none of which have ever failed.
My original Performa 635CD never suffered from hardware failure
My Blue and White G3 the same
My Powerbook G4 the same

At the same time at work I maintain Dell Machines, in half the time that I
have owned macs we have:
1. Experienced HD failures
2. Experienced motherboard failures
3. Experienced VGA and/or display ribbon failures
4. Experienced unreliable hardware all around
