    I'm not sure if anyone else has seen the commercials yet, but our *other* favorite computer maker and their beloved spokesperson, the "Dude you're getting a Dell" kid, are now sweeting up their computers by offering the chance to win a fabulous international vacation with your purchase.

    What I'm wondering is if you have to sit through a Dell brainwashing session before hitting the beach. You know, a "free" vacation laden with Dell propaganda and sales tactics--maybe a "sell a Dell to your friends and family" pyramid scheme.

    You may have already won!!!

    nah I thought it was something you'd find in a cereal box with a decoder ring.

    Hey, that's an idea

    They could ship a decoder ring with every Dell to help you determine what the hex codes mean on all the BSODs you get.

    more like they realize you'll need a vacation from your Dell computer, that's why they're giving them away

    it is a pretty lame gimic, though. Is the competition that tight in the PC world that they have to resort to that level?
