All Dells mask the BIOS. That's why you see their logo and that loading bar when you start up your system. There's no way to bypass it, unless you buy Windows XP and completely reinstall it.

Well desktops are a different story. God knows what they use in there...

But the notebooks usually all have the same motherboard and chipset, so you can't exactly choose the crappy brand because Acer makes all the parts for almost all the PC companies (except for Sony). So when you buy a Dell laptop, you're really just paying for Dell's logo and custom chassis. Other than that, you're pretty much buying hardware from Acer.
