For the most part I hate Dell, Gateway too. Didn't Gateway get purchased by eMachines when they went under? All you're buying from them now is an overpriced eMachines.

Yeah, people are so ******* stupid. They get that Dell XPS "gaming" PC thinking that they are getting top-of-the-line hardware, only to discover that games run poorly on it at full settings. Then they think that PCs suck and go buy an x-box. I laugh at people like this. It's them that gets a kick in the balls, not you. Why get worked up about other people's stupidity?

The only good PC is a homemade PC. End of story. There are no worries about crappy, cheap parts or proprietary parts. You can pick and choose the best parts to fit your needs.

well, i can see you like macs, but macs are cheap parts, and with apple the one thing you cant do is a custom system. With exception of the g5 which still had limited expandability.
