James72: Will he solder new capacitors to the desktop motherboards that won't explode the minute the warranty expires? That might make me consider buying a Dell.
oldfarthenry: Dudes, hire me back - my unemployment benefits are running out!
Tangenital: After years of being a regular Dell purchaser I have bought my last craptop. A little over a year old and already replaced the display and now the dreaded power supply warning has hit me a couple of times.

ha-ha-guy: Aside from the mentioned GX260/270s, I've never really had a problem with Dell commodity hardware and if it breaks while under the business warranty they send a guy out the next day to fix it with the part. I have much more negative feelings to Lenovo and HP. All my Thinkpads (be they IBM or Lenovo) had odd onboard hardware that required installing manufacturer bloatware to make work and of course the blue button. I really hated the R31 work issued me. It always seemed like the Dells of that era were faster because they didn't have 20 freaking extra processes tooling around in the background./just bought a tricked out Precision as a home media server and to run gaming servers on//I used to build my own hardware, now I'm more of buy it, insert extra RAM, boot it
uncoveror: Dell going private is the best thing that could happen for customers and employees. Privately held companies don't have to turn tricks for the gamblers on Wall Street. Any company that can afford to should get away from the stock market.
