I personally have been a Dell customer for just around four years (I know this since my warranty is about to run out, exciting). Throughout these four years, I've experienced some of the worst times of my life, some because of their fail computers, and others because of their fail tech support. I recently received my 5th computer from dell (the 4th replacement computer), and I'm almost satisfied.
I Started out my Dell customer career with an Inspiron E-1505
Guess what happened, that computer broke as well, though this one lasted almost a year. Granted, I did drop it once and the LCD detached from the base, but other than that i had to get multiple charger replacements, and motherboard replacements, and audio card and video card replacements. Really a very "pleasant" experience, right? Wrong...
So as a replacement for my XPS M1710, I received an XPS M1730, now, I was really excited, this computer was a beast!
So I received the first Alienware computer I had ever seen in person, was really exciting. I ended up with an Alienware M17x-R1, which featured an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000, an nVidia GTX 260M and an nVidia Geforce 9400M for stealth/power saver mode. But, the screen was only 900p, where my XPS was 1200-, the trackpad didn't work correctly, the microphone array didn't work correctly, and the battery wouldn't charge, so once again, they replaced my laptop, and I ended up with an Alienware M17x-R2. Now, this thing, is the beastliest of beasts. My model featured an Intel Core i7 820QM @ 1.7ghz, with turbo mode up to 3.06ghz, 6GB DDR3 1333mhz RAM, a 500gb HDD @ 7.2k , my 1200p LCD, and a buncha other stuff. So I'm satisfied now I guess, but the microphone array on this doesn't work either, so they're replacing the mic and my sound card and what not. We'll see how it turns out.
What kinda computers do you guys got? Any experiences with Dell that were good? Any that were bad? Do tell.
