i mean, like, everybody makes mistakes. my dell's been running fine. perhaps its because in my country when i call them the operators are not from foreign countries. Why not post the good instead of the bad? it's not unusual for a computer to go beeping when it boots if it's a few years old. and even if it isn't i bet its a rare incident. The build quality of dell's stuff is usually very good too, and it provides configurability which you cannot find in my country other than dell.
