FWIW, I have three at home now, and have used Latitude laptops for 10+
years at
work. I have never had a problem with the work laptops or their
docking systems.

I bought a Dell 1505 for my daughter for college, running without fail
for 3
years (Windows MCE). The only glitch was in the first month when
the DVD drive
failed. After a troubleshooting session with a Dell tech,
I had a replacement
drive shipped. It arrived in less than 24 hours and
installed it myself. No
problems since.

I bought a Dell 1515 for my son for college in February 2009 (Vista
Everything works fine so far.

I bought a Dell XPS 15" laptop in April 2009 (Vista HP). Everything
works fine
so far, but the fit and finish was unacceptable -- there was
a "bump" in the
keyboard and the media control panel, resulting from a
twisted power cable. A
technician came to my house, replaced the
keyboard and MCP, and left me the
originals. No cost; problem fixed. I
could have returned the laptop and demanded
a new one. Instead, I
checked a local Sam's Club and saw a Studio 15 on display
that had the
same "bump." A little online research showed the problem was
but recognized.
