Ripping people off with faulty products made from cheap, substandard components results leads to financial loss?

On more than one occasion I've seen Dell laptops completely shiat the bed because some $0.05 component melted, or a design flaw in the adapter caused it to fry both the adapter and part or all of the BIOS within a month (a VERY common problem that Dell blatantly refuses to recognize), or the motherboard simply falls apart due to shiatty solder or a poorly designed cooling system (if they put all the air vents on the bottom of the thing, of course the CPU will idle at >80 C, that doesn't mean it's "normal"). More often than not this requires hundreds of dollars of repairs. You'd send your laptop away, only for it to come back with a faulty replacement motherboard/GPU/whatever that causes the same ridiculous problems all over again.

It's like Dell designs many of their low end products to be broken pieces of shiat on purpose so you'll spend more money. They think they can get away with it because computers aren't cars and nobody gets hurt.

Well, when the quality of your product sinks, while filling it with more and more bloatware, people are less willing to buy it.
