Default Dell, Explosives, and a Laptoop

A while back we had a post that was releted to a dell laptop blowing up. Me being bias towards dell was glad that it was a dell. A lot of other mebers said it wasn't a dell. They were no proof of it being a dell.

Well now theres proof, boom ya go

This has nothing to do with Dell. Dell made the computer and put Sony batteries in them, the same as Apple. Both recalled them.

Dell's not the largest computer company in the world because they have crappy computers. They sell $54,000,000 a day! They are computer suppliers to over 80% of the fortune 500 companies in the world.

Not to mention, Dell owns Alienware too. They are now going to AMD as well....who could honestly ask for any more than that?

I read about it too....but the truck was chock full of ammunition, so placing the blame on a laptop is rather miniscule. LOL

Thats a good point. I mean everyone makes mistakes and it wouldn't put me off buying a dell laptop, I've always found dell quite good anyway
