IMOHO I hate dell, I hate everything about them, and I hate their customer service.

There is actual evidence of them putting refurbished parts in their computers, and that my friend is why they always fry out quickly.

But besides my grudge, that is a decent computer for the price. Wait, is that a laptop?
