Chipp,
I too have had "issues" with Apple hardware (most notably, replacing the 
screen on this 17" laptop). But in the last two months I updated three companies 
who were still using all of the hardware I installed for them a decade ago. 
Another customer refuses to give up his 18 year old ImageWriter printer. Of 
course these are isolated examples and don't prove anything.
Consumer Reports has, for the last three years, said Apple had the most 
repair-free hardware (especially the desktops) and the best tech support - this 
based on reader surveys.

PS I'm not sure MTBF HAS increased. Seems that HDs fail more frequently, RAM 
failure was never an issue for me until about five years ago, the old 
keyboards would last forever but some of the new ones are unusable after a year or so 
of hard use.
PPS The Asus' Eee PC 701 looks interesting as long as it doesn't cost more 
than an iPhone.
