I'm actually getting a little tierd of people saying Dell's are all crap. They're actually all my parents buy. They're pretty stable, but they do need service a few times a year (And this is just because our internet provider has some SERIOUS issue's.) Does anyone remember the Dell's of the 90's? these things actually worked. Hell, I got one with Windows 95 (the only windows system I trust) I use regulary for word processing, music and old skool games. In fact, link I've never used a Dell laptop, but they can't be as bad as people on this forum say. If Dell's were really as bad as this forum suggests, they'd go the way of Packard Bell's REAL fast. To still be in bussiness, people still have to buy them. and they do. Let the flaming begin.
