    Got a Dell Inspiron E1505 and no problems other than the once in a while glitch...but even my custom built desktop does that stuff....its normal if you keep em running for a while. I've got a Dell precision 390 workstation here at work and its kick a$$....no problems, and its got the best core 2 duo processor and 4 gigs of ram woo hoo! So in conclusion, I've seen no problems with dell, but my roommate who has his own computer repair business is plagued by dells coming in needing fixed....i'm thinking its just cause alot of people have dells so you have a higher chance of getting a broken dell to fix!

    NO Dell's suck, it's just that people don't know it yet, just wait until it needs repair, so you want to take it to a local shop to fix it, good luck as Dell parts are proprietary and Dell will not sell parts to a local shop, so guess what, you get to experience that fine Dell customer no service. That is the point you are questioning why I got sucked in to buying a Dell, trust me it will happen. I was once a huge Dell fan until I got put through the grinder, now I will never buy another Dell no matter how much you paid me.

    Those damn crazy Dell people. You'd think they have these things built, and sitting in a warehouse for shipment. Apparently it took them 3 days to build it. It wouldn't even take 2 days to build this laptop from scratch...I'm talking inner layer PCB cores, solder reflow, and board population. Never mind assembling pre-made components.

    The fact that I'm just going to be getting it tomorrow kind of stinks since I ordered it early last week, and it went out 3 day shipping.
    Oh well. I'll let you know tomorrow.

    For now, I need to get the wireless router setup.

    Well, I've got my new toy. So far so good. I'll be happy as long as I don't have to experience the dreaded "Dell Customer Service".

    On a different note, has anyone seen the new Mac commercial where they poke fun at PC's running Windows Vista?
    It's the one where PC has to constantly answer yes or no, to what looks like an FBI agent everytime he either wants to talk to Mac, or do pretty much anything.


    Well, I got this Dell, and it came with windows Vista Basic. I tried to go Linux way back when, but it was just too alien for me from DOS, so I just stuck with microsoft. Besides a few blue screens never killed anyone.
    Anyway, I figured the latest greatest windows has to be...well the greatest (or at least better than the last).
    I just want to say, I think Windows Vista stinks.
    Every time you want to run a program you have to tell the computer either yes or no.
    OK, if I didn't want to run the program, I wouldn't have "double clicked" it.

    I think I'm going to step backwards, and install Xp in this machine. Vista just seems like even more bloatware that Xp is. It's terribly slow. I can at least deal with Xp.

    So, does anyone else run Vista, and are they happy with it?

    No, I've got a notebook, a PC at home and a PC at work. All XP.

    In fact, we only have two machines in the entire company (we're a software company) that have Vista on it. Windows XP SP2 actually seems pretty stable, so I'm good for now.

    I'm testing Vista at work; it runs great on a dual core CPU wit 2 GB memory.
    The questions when you start a program is because the programs aren't Vista verified and are a potential danger for Vista he thinks it's probably spy ware.

    Ok, well then my Vista was stupid. I would open the control panel, and start the administrator services , and it would ask if I wanted to allow or cancel. Same thing for add/remove programs.

    Well Vista is just a memory on this machine, and it seems that both the computer and I are much happier without it. Computer is much faster now.
