Dells aren't really that bad. They're pretty cheap, and they get the job done for 90% of users that only want to browse the internet, check e-mail, and use word processing.

I wouldn't say they are number one, but if you spend enough, they are great computers. I just wish they had so TS people still here in America though. I can barely understand the people with the Indian Accents.

What about their laptop selections? They're highly customizable.

Well yes, their laptops are good, but Sony makes them just as great.

My roommate has a Sony Vaio and trust me, they have really good specs for the price. I always thought Sony was high end and expensive, but when I saw their laptop prices, I nearly choked because they were much lower than I originally thought they would be!!! The only thing that's preventing me from getting it is because he has one and I don't want to copy him.

I have a Sony Vaio sz480, and I play games like CSS on high settings and perfectly well. The 7400 is a really big plus. The VAIO's gpus are so much better than Dell's. I spent 2.5k on this laptop, but I think it is worth every penny.

Gasp, $2,500? Wow, that has got to be top of the line. How about the battery life? Did you get a 9 cell battery? Those expensive laptops tend to use a lot of juice, which is why I hesitate getting the Dell XPS. But I guess if I get their best battery, it will be ok.

Yeah I have the 9-cell. It is great. Usually when I am at home I just connect a monitor to it and game on it. It has a c2d after all.

How long does that last you using the 9-cell? Aren't they suppose to last up to 4 hours or something?
