Re: Laptops

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a Dell laptop, and it doesn't appear any less rugged than the others out there.  I've found most of the customer service there to be pretty good, even if it takes a little extra time to get transferred back to a US call center to get the down-and-dirty technical help you really need. Just beware of their entry level models - it's like carrying a suitcase full of rocks. 

If you like squeezing nickels 'til the buffalo ----s, and can be patient about your purchase, go over to and take a lurk in the hot deals forum (search for inspiron or lattitude - the dell laptop models).  Also, if you want a dell, register at their small business website to get their junk-mailers - you'll get coupons each week (usu. 10-15% off laptops).

From a cost standpoint, it's really hard to compete with Dell. They usually have some type of deal going on, and that's pretty much what I recommend to friends and family when they bring up the subject of laptops.
