XPS and Alienware is the premium lineup so build quality is there. You can't go wrong with these models. Dell also do have one of the best customer service so far I have heard.
To give you answer about chance of failure is very hard as it depend on the user and manufacturers quality control.
Most likely your Mac failed because you got unlucky with its internals.
Laptops lifespan doesn't depend on OS (unless you are taking about updates). As long you are taking care of your laptop it will last for as long as you want bar any environment and unforeseen factors.
If you want a very long lasting laptops. Look at models like Thinkpads or Toughbooks and etc.
Yeah, i believed it was internals too. SOL too since out of warranty. Thanks for the write up. Thinkpads looks great but the display is a bit off for me, my cousin has an E470 i believe and its display is meh. Keyboard is great however. Toughbooks seems too much instead lol

xps 13 last longer than alienware 13... if u no game on it...n i pretty sure tat 1 is DFO... dun ever buy import unit as there r tons of it on market now...
if game wise of coz alienware 13 la
What is a DFO? Is the online store one an import unit?
Is getting it online (XPS or Alienware) a good idea then? Or is there a better place to get? I dont know much where to get best laptops lol. Thing is if online can get free XPS sleeve, powerbank or usb-hdmi adapter.
Lets say I'll be a moderate user. 5-6 hours a day, streaming Netflix or Plex, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator mostly, with some 1 out of every 10 days, light gaming like Football Manager or Sims 4. Which laptop will be able to hold longer?
