Default Ever notice Dells upgrade?

Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you noticed a jump in dells products since they bought out alienware?

I noticed a Giant jump in quality.

dell.... u are disgraced for mentioning that name in the "Building, Buying, or Upgrading High Performance PC Systems" forum...

Dell.. they overprice everything @ about twice as much as they cost

Seriously build something at dell.com for about $1000 and then build something @ monarchcomputers.com or newegg.com for the same amount and see which one is better....

Dell is for old people who want a warranty or people who know nothing about computers.

The only thing I would ever buy from Dell is one of their laptops. And thats only because I dont know how to build laptops.

Dell LCDs are made by Samsung, may as well get a Samsung they're about the same price and have a 3 year warranty.
