You pays yer money and takes yer choice really mate. Personally I would go for a Dell. Sure there are folk that have had problems and will tell you to run a mile, but in my experience they are very reliable. I'm on my third in 12 years and none of them have ever let me down. We have a mixture at work of Dell and Toshiba. Have had various failures with the Toshibas, but very few problems with the Dells.
I'm surprised a full format of the HDD and a complete OS rebuild wouldn't sort your current PC though.
