I think the same holds true in any industry, be it cars or computers. Some people have nothing but great experience with a certain brand, others get a lemon first time around. Take me, for example... Honda has a very good reputation for making vehicles that last. After my Civic fell apart at just over 100k, I decided to never purchase a Honda vehicle again. The same applies to my experience with Dell, after spending ~$2,400 on XPS back in 2004. I've only had one-time experience with Dell and it was bad enough for me to rethink my position as a their customer in the future.

I see less complaints from Lenovo or Mac users, though (there are a little bit more from Toshiba, but I still like the brand).

Apple's build quality can't be faulted. You pay a premium for their products, but you know you're getting something that's going to work perfectly. Nintendo have a similar reputation with their handheld consoles.
