IANAL but I think that's wrong. If you never agreed to the EULA and never signed any form of contract with Dell then there was no contract that they can hold you to hence they can't enforce any kind of "jurisdiction agreement" because you never agreed to it.
The general rule of thumb is the one who brings the lawsuit picks the jurisdiction, but there are some rules that apply to try to make things a bit more fairly.
