Default Re: Dell

Just because you donít people to stop bashing Dell, doesnít mean itís going to stop. And just because you hate HP/Compaq, doesnít mean everyone else has to. It all lies within opinion.

I personally had never any negative experiences with HP. For one, their case is quite expandable, and quite roomy. I have space for an available 3 drives, along with two more harddrives, a floppy/media drive and 3 PCI slots.

The harddrives face towards me, and allow me to remove them without hassle.

But you know, I paid for this thing, and it wasnít cheap. The saying is applied here. You get what you pay for. People pay around 500 bucks for a PC, and expect it to play the highest end software. But that simply isnít the case, as to do most people think. So what do they do? When they have an error, or a hardware problem, they end up at your place. So youíll have to fix most of the ďbudget in mindĒ PCs.

Stop the genocide now.

I won't buy another dell. The hard drive and optical drive went bad all in a few months. Support is a nightmare, you can't understand them and they just run you around to "departments" and insist everything is software related, THEN they expect you to pay 99 dollars for their "Dell On Call" service which does nothing but tell you how to set up a printer and crap like that. The machine itself is good now that it's working normally, but their support sucks. I do like the fact that the tower has alot of room to work around in and that it's quiet though.... but I'm not a huge fan of dell anymore.

Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
