This question comes in 2 parts really

Part 1

Dell Laptops with nVidia GPUs - are they all as-likely to fail as each other? I know there are significant issues with the GPUs 'melting off the board' (ala XBOX 360s) but are they all that bad - is a 2-3 years old XPS laptop likely to be a doorstop!?!?

Part 2

What PC specific forums do you guys visit for techy stuff - not so much the overclocking, more hardware repairs, reliability fixes, driver fixes etc. etc (e.g. where else can I ask Part 1)!

TIA!

Notebook review runs a pretty big forum, I often seem to end up there when I need something notebook specific, but honestly I didn't have a whole lot of issues with the laptops I have dealt with so far - so, no idea if it'll be useful to you.
