    Now towards end 3 yr lease of low-end Dell Laptop (1.6GHz/256MB (updated 512)/30GB HD/16 VRAM/CD-RW-never worked).

    The kit has always been a piece of junk- never burned a single CD/ support awful/ screen problems/ and Win XP updates weekly. Lesson- never buy consumer grade Dell- the corporates get better!

    Now I'm finding my "market rate" buy option a massive c$1432- totalling c$4,452.90 over the period. Feeling totally burned.

    Just thought I'd share- leasing Dell is a waste of time!

    Leasing anything with the intention of buying it at the end is a waste of time.
