  3. Dell laptops are ugly as sin, they use to be some nice descent looking machinery. Dell like most American Companies want to sell us what they wouldn't buy themselves.

    I work with primarily Dell's for my business. Granted I would never buy one for a home desktop, but their laptops are actually quite nice. The business PC's are nice because are almost all (architecturally) compatible which is really nice for businesses who have to swap out a dead pc and then have to deal with someone whining that someone has a new computer. As far as workstations and business desktops go they are great.

  6. Agreed. Same goes for HP, Toshiba, Acer, and even Sony. The best PC's as of now are Asus and Lenovo.
  7. It amazes me how people still only mention PC's when talking about Dell. Seems that everyone forgets that the PC business is only roughly a little over 20% of Dell's business. They have in the past several years shifted into an Enterprise Server/Software/Storage/Services company.
