Dell ripped me off twice... one time with a pda and the other with a mid-ranged pc about 5 years ago.

"...Since we re-use the peripherals and OS license from previous builds for our own systems, a fair value assessment required subtracting the cost of those parts from Dell's list price. Doing this brought the XPS 720 H2C down to "only" $6,400."

LMFAO. thats f***in absurd, i dont care who you are.

lol you know what i think is funny.

I took programming last year and i had all types of nerds in my class, but all of them thought there dells was better than my machine because some of them had more ghz then me on there processers (P4 > C2D) and that some of them had an ATI gpu (older ati's > 8800gtx)

Practically the whole class was arquing with me about this. I all most p***ed my pants in laughter. I think the teacher was the only one that agreed with me.

Perhaps I am further missing something here...

For the Win? For the Lose? What are they winning or losing exactly? Money? or what are we referring to? *blank stare*
