    dell will probably be fine, some people have bad experiences with customer service and thats all you hear about. ive used dells at home and work and they have always been fine.

    Installing os x on a machine designed for windows, will never be as stable as a clean, streamlined XP installation. I subscribe to the view that XP SP3 is much better, easier to tweak and run than OS X for music.

    The hard drive on that model may be a tad slow, can you get 7200 rpm?
