I have a Dell X200 Laptop, nice little unit... so I got to pay my monthly bill, because of course gotta put it on credit so I dont have to wait to get it. So I figure here ill go online and pay it. I come to find out that Dell doesn't accept payments online. WTF?? THEY MAKE FUCKING COMPUTERS. They can't accept payments online? What the hell kinda shit is that? 12 year olds accept credit cards on ebay, and they can't? This is rediculous. I'm really pissed, this company used to be A-1, back in the day if I did consulting for a client, I would say buy Dell and no other, I am perosnally responsible for them earning in upwards of $200,000, which is a drop in the bucket for them, but still. Now their support sucks, they don't accept credit cards, my friend told me that in 7 out of 10 of the laptops his company owns, the hard drive has taken a shit within two years. Their desktops ship now with parts floating around inside. To top it all off when going over my statement I realized their minimum payment is less then the interest charges. Fuckers. So anyway, Don't buy Dell, I have no better suggestions, but don't buy Dell. Maybe this thread should have a point, so the point will be what do you guys think is the best manufacturer out there? Oh, one comforting things is I found a support forum within dell's domain where people were just all trashing dells support and saying how dell sucks. Its comforting to know that dell is paying for the bandwidth and storage of posts that just talk shit on them.
