    Yes its reallt easy and much betetr in the long run all companies such as dell, gateway, emachines, you name it all use cheap porrly made parts from china that dont last long and dont perform to their maxium potienal

    i hear a lot of crap about dell...
    .....
    Me and my sister laptop bought from there... my dad bought a dimension 3600 from there abt 3 years ago and my 2 of my friends just bought their pc's from there like a year ago.... all of these system runn fine... yea it is true that they have some cheep parts in there.. (no a lot)... tho I prefer building a pc from scratch… but if someone wants to buy a pre-built system then i think dell is a good choice... some of their parts might be cheep but as far as i know they do last long... oh well that is my opinion.... its just what i have experienced with their (might be a lucky one) ... well… i would agree their customer service is pretty sloppy... other than that i am happy with their products.... i know that they use to sell some junk... but now their pc are pretty gud...

    Anyways.... i won’t argue too much since most of u guys are working in this filed... and u have seen more busted dells than me... lol



    **Edit**

    Oh... but i will argue that dell's laptops are gud... lol (atleast the one's above $1000)

    Well what's the point of having a laptop anyways? You cant really game with them and they are really hard to find parts to upgrade them, Desktops are alot better but laptops are only good for like Internet browsing / mobile DVD player ;)

    Of course building a PC would be far superior to buying a Dell.

    But for $269, those uber-strapped on budget can get a disposable Dell that will have superior performance to some old Pentium II or Pentium III system with PC-66/100 memory LOL.

    It'll be basically useless to upgrade and have no longevity, but it's a much wiser decision than to keep plunking cash into a long, long obsolete dinosaur of a PC. A $269-$299 Dell with integrated audio, ddr2 memory and >2ghz CPU will play Sims 2 a whole lot better than a Pentium 2/3.

    Yeah, My server was by Compaq and it was pretty well built befor I got it, Came with 1gig RAM, 3.20GHz Processor, a 6200 nVidia PCI videocard so I had almost nothing to upgrade but the RAM ( wanted 2 gigs )
