Default Computer companies, good and bad....

Okay, i'm just going to act like a complete newb and ask the question. (I know PLENTY about computer parts and their capabilities (not ALL (there's always more to learn)) but...) what are the goods, and bads, highs, and lows. of the different computer producing companies. I don't know... why do most tech guys hate DELL. and so on. Please Answer!!! (expl. HP, DELL, Alienware, IMB, GateWay...) and so on, so if someone could please help? starting with those...

I didn't know which forum to place this on so i placed it here... just in case someone asks...
