Has anyone experienced any of the supposed problems with the Dell 1600

last year have a fault on the motherboard, whereby the video chip
actually burns up in a huge cloud of smoke.
We are getting conflicting reports out of Dell, depending who we talk
to. The support technicians have all said they have seen 3 or 4 of these
failures each over the past 6 months or so, but our account manager kind
of glosses over the problem.
Personally, if my office and everyone in it was conceivably in peril of
imminent destruction by raging inferno I don't think I'd let my account
rep 'gloss over' the problem.
Do you not like your co-workers? :)
