Default Dell

I hate dell. For christmas, my dad bought me a dell inspiron 600m, and a dell desktop for my mom, and another one for my sister. When I used my inspiron for the first time, I found picturs from an indian family. The guys name was Garoosh. Also, My moms monitor stopped working. They both had 3 year warrantys on them, and they wont honor it. I had to buy a new Hard drive, and my mummy had to buy a new monitor. Anyways, I hate dell. I talked to one of my friends who used to work for them, and he said they use refurbished parts!

I was just thinking about how much Dell sucks too. Their "gaming" PC the XPS Gen 5 or whatever its called is about $1,700 (thats marked down from $2,000) and you only get 512MB of RAM, and a 6800 (not GT or Ultra). I don't think that includes a monitor or speakers. Whats more, they said the hardware in this machine is "top of the line" and "cutting edge." lol

People are so stupid. A friend went out and bought a Dell, knowing full well that I would build one for him. Worse, he started bashing Apple and every other computer manufacturer on Earth, calling them "second-best" to Dell.

Can I shoot myself now?

I'm gonna hijack this thread to ***** about Gateway too. I spent a ton of money buying PCs from them over the years until I bought my last tower. I got it and the graphics quality sucked... So I went out and bought an AGP vid card (when they were the best there was) and when I went to install it I found out that there WAS NO AGP SLOT ON THE MOBO. Now, let me explain this, there was a design on the mobo where the AGP slot should have been stamped, but there was nothing there. Gateway sucks. I will never buy a pre-fab computer again.
