Huh?? where did you hear that?... Dude i've owned a Dell for about 4 years now... gotta say their tech support is total sh*ts! Even my neighbor's pet dog can diagnose better than those knuckleheads. I haven't used their tech support since 2001 when i got totally fed up... hopefully they have cleaned up their act sine then.

As far as their PCs go... yeah Crucial was right on the money when he said they are the 'least trouble free'.
