Re: It somewhat sickens me that...
I've had a Dell Dimension for 6 years and it's been simply wonderful. Got a new Advent PC in Jan '04, but still using the Dell for some things. I blew up the HD last Thursday though, never mind, I'm about to buy a new one, and chuck in another RAM stick also.
I think it's great. Obviously the quality's gone downhill since I bought mine.
