I'll be buying a laptop this week, and I'm basically considering anyone but Dell. Here was my absolutely horrific experience with them on a technical support problem in 2001.
As for Dell and outsourcing, I know at least once I was talking to a Dell tech support person in the Philippines, and probably others. At least when I used a Dell, they seemed to outsource their tech support.
Anyway, I'm happy that they support the Austin area economy, but there's no way in hell I'll ever buy another one.
I will never buy a Dell. Ever. I think y'all know why...
No, why Andrea... I would love to hear another "Dell sucks" story in case people don't take my word for it....
I'll have to chime in that this BOR writer has a Dell laptop and is just fine with it. :)
Well good for you Karl-Thomas... I'm tempted to do a "Dell Sucks" post, but I do think that I'll abstain from it for now. It's not really worth it, but if there's another Dell is the next Jesus post from another BOR writer, I'll have to post my thoughts... ;-)
Michael Dell is a big time 'Phant.
What's more, when he took the top off a hill to create a palatial estate, he fought with Austin for something like 4 years to weasel out of taxes.
Alright, so Dell computers suck- what else would you expect from something made in the U S of A? Its like an American made car- I don't drive them because they suck.
But at least a few more people won't have to worry about losing their jobs. And this has less to do with Michael Dell than with his company.
