Still waiting for an apology for those awfully designed optiplex 780's.

Hah. To be fair, Apple and the rest has this issue. It was China's fault they said, as usual.

Based on my experience with battery suppliers for hybrid cars....

Everyone not named LG Chem lies like a whore and fails to deliver. People named LG Chem are better, but overall I have a strongly unfavorable view of everyone in the industry.

Well, Mr. Dell, we'd like to give you the extended warranty but the boss says I've been giving too many of these things away. He'd have my ass if I gave it to you on top of the great price and service that you're already getting. Tell you what. I want you to have this. I want you to have a great experience with Boeing. I gotta go talk to my manager. Just wait here. I'm going to fly to Chicago and talk to him. I'll be right back.

(Two Days Later)
Sorry to keep you waiting, buddy. I talked to the manager. he's not happy. He says we shouldn't be giving all this stuff away but I told him what a great guy you are and he says he's gonna let it go. You got the warranty, the upgraded seats, the leather trimmed controls and Boeing (tm) Whisper Quiet Air Conditioning with the filter upgrade. But you gotta give me something, man. I'm pleading with you. When people ask you about this great deal, don't tell them how bad you raped me. I really need this job. I can't have Bill Gates coming in here and saying "I want the deal you gave Dell". We just can't do that. What if the Facebook guy came in here and said "I want a deal better than Dell got"? The manager would have me busted down to the used 737 market. I'm begging you. Don't tell all your friends about the great deal Boeing gave you.

Hey Boeing dudes, you, like remember me? Yeah. Dell. I'm the Dell Dude and I own the Dell Computers biz. I'm, like, looking for a plane and my bros said "Boeing, dude. They got the planes. And, like since, I own a company, I said 'why not'?

So this looks like a really cool plane. I'll take it. You got it in any other colors? It's cool. I can get it painted cause I own a company. Just sell a few more computers, right? So, just bring me the paperwork and I'll sign my Dell name to it. Names as good as gold. Dell still makes computers and computer stuff.

Oh no. I'm not a pilot, dude. I own a company. You can't be both, you know? I figure I'll crash - sorry - sleep in it for a while. You know? Go in to first class cause that's where the leg room is, crank back and watch a little television on the little televisions. Maybe have my, er business associates over for all weekend meetings.

So can you park it over there near the liquor store? Okay? I'm Dell. You can Youtube it. Top of the search returns.

As an owner of a Dell laptop with a shiatty battery, and a farkload of ill will toward Dell for all the shiatty service I've received over this shiatty product, a product line of which, I've sworn never to buy another, I'm getting a kick...

My old girlfriend called and said, when somebody has a plane big enough to ride a horse in it, she'll consider being slightly impressed.

But she still won't like the upholstery.

I ordered a Dell Ultra with 'Windows 8', and it came with Windows 8 Home Edition. I need Windows 8 Pro, so I call them up and tell them to give me a free upgrade to Pro. (I ordered 'Windows 8' from their website, didn't say whether it was Pro or Home.) Long CSB short, after about 10 days they send me $200.00 and a free upgrade because I claimed their site was deceptive. Rock and roll.

Sounds like you discovered Dell REC. They can fix stuff.

A dell tech came to my house and swapped out a laptop display because it had a hot pixel. Total downtime: 30 minutes, maybe

The business line with on site warranty has worked well for us

FTFA: Boeing has been forced to halt 787 deliveries

Whoa that's a lot of planes!!
*thinking*
Oh! Nevermind...
Actually my flight from Houston to SF recently was on a Dreamliner. I was very impressed. More leg room, comfy seat, extra pillow, and best of all each seat has its own screen to watch a movie or tv show. Loved it!

Glad to see Michael can afford it with all the money he saved firing 30% of the workforce in the Dell shop i was in. Congrats, 1%!
