Personally I think Dell suck, overrated, and cost a fortune to repair
DELL PSU to fit Dell PC case cost us £80
standard would have cost £30
Dell printers.... poor quality and cost a fortune to replace the toner cartridge.
And I'm not to keen on the DELL switches... had two fail in the space of 4 month.
I'd have to say cisco, because they are the most diverse networking company.
For servers and storage it has to be ibm.
I like toshiba because i think they make good quality copiers and laptops.
G1! Acer Aspire 1! PS3! (Those three for personal reasons obviously)
I do like Dell & HP kit. In terms of software, my favourite piece at the moment would have to be Sony Vegas (got a lot of editing to do over summer).
Apple, Dell & HP. Since being with the NHS a while back, now education this kit just seems to work without too many problems.
Getting support for them is easy, pretty much next day service (I'll ignore Apple in this statement though)

Custom Spec PCs for PC's, for the fact that you know you are putting in good quality parts.
Toshiba Laptops - Rarely had one break apart from a 5 year old one which had a few keys picked off by kids.
Netgear / 3Com managed smart switches - fantastic set up on them, easy to use.
xbox 360 gaming console - uber leet in terms of gameplay (better than PS3 everywhere apart from graphics).
Call of duty 4 - best software out there, I enjoy kicking arse too much!
