    check this out at the smoking gun:

    here's the link

    from the story:

    Meet George Doughty. For some reason--and we're sure it was a fine one--the 48-year-old Colorado man fired four shots into his Dell laptop Sunday (3/2) morning. He whacked the defenseless machine in the Sportsman's Inn, a bar he owns, while a couple of patrons and a bartender looked on. Doughty put the Dell on the tavern's floor, told onlookers to cover their ears, and proceeded to blast away. While nobody was hurt, Doughty was arrested by the Lafayette Police Department on menacing, reckless endangerment, and prohibited use of weapons charges for placing the customers of his bar in danger. After executing the computer, Doughty hung the late laptop on the bar's wall, like a hunting trophy. (1 page)

    Sounds like a potential switcher, once he gets out of jail.

    coming from a techie's point of view...it is probably windows xp which made that man go mad

    so he is not shooting dell, but bill gates and microsoft

    if there were a bill gates voodoo doll out there...just imagine the possibilities

    That would make an awesome switch commercial!

    'My name is George Doughty and I shot my computer.... (~3 seconds
    of silence)....... 4 times....... (3 more seconds of silence)..... and
    hung it on the wall.

    That would be priceless. :eek: :rolleyes: :D :D :p

    As big of an idiot as that guy is (firing a gun in a bar, inlight of the **** that's happened recently) he deserves a dell.

    This reminds me of the old Apple advert where someone gets so angry with their PC they was a chain saw on it. They then go out and get a Mac.

    The revolt! It's starting!

    First it's a guy with a six shooter and a laptop and before you know it, we'll all be Mac Warriors ridding this planet of the vile Gates Emporium.

    *ahem* Okay, so I've been neglecting my medication regime again... :p

    It doesn't sound like a problem. He may have been acting pre-emptively; who knows what that Dell would have done if left unshot.
