Default Buying a new comp.

Im trying to get a brand new, high end, computer. It has to be from dell (trying to build my credit while getting an awesome computer). What are some of the good pcs from Dell that would be excellent from gaming? (Alienware or Dell itself) Laptops are ok, but desktops are preferred. Thanks

Default Re: Buying a new comp.

If you want to get credit and a high-end computer you're probably better off getting a credit card, buying all the parts from an on-line retailer and putting it on the card, then paying off the balance through them (try a Discover card if you have little/no credit).
I am not sure that Dell reports to credit agencies unless you default on payments, I know most companies don't.

You will get a much better computer for your money, as well as build your credit. But that is if you are willing to build it yourself to get a better system.

From what a rep told me at dell, they do report to agencies. I don't know how to fully build a computer, so I figured it would be easier to just buy one.
