Dell's 3Q Sales and Profits Fall Flat

Back in the day, Dell manufactured pretty good large laptops with 17" screens.

I am typing on an old Inspiron E1705 with an ATI X1400 video card.

I bought this desktop replacement 5 years ago, and now it is running Windows 7 without a glitch.

However, the new 16" laptop I bought last week was a Toshiba with Harmon Kardon speakers.

The netbook I bought last month was also a Toshiba, N205.

Both Toshibas were priced cheap, and they are running Win 7 without a hiccup.




While I can agree with not liking Dells consumer hardware, their enterprise hardware is really well done. 


Edit - Doh this was supposed to be a reply.



True, really my problem never was with Dell's hardware, it was always with the ridiculous overload of useless software they packaged all their consumer based PC systems with. Anytime a family member or friend buys a Dell, I always ask them what they are going to use it for and then just start removing programs left and right. It just really annoys me. That and the fact that they are adding the cost of all of that extra, un-needed software into the overall price of the PC you are purchasing which means you can build a system nearly twice as powerful as what Dell is willing to sell you for the same price.

Well...I hate Dell. So HUZZAH! I've never had anything but problems and frustration with their computers (usually fixing them for friends or family members).
