. . . hence the name "Della", as in "Della Street" . . .

Stupid Dell. Not all women are clueless about computers, my girlfriend built hers(with some help, ill admit). And after selling computers at a Staples for almost two years, i've noticed that women (especially middle-aged and older) know more about computers than their husbands.       -Denis

Well most of the time what your saying is true.  But I worked at the same staples as you and I had my fair share of women (and people in general) coming in to ask for a "computer thing" and a "thinggggg" and a "UBS cable".. etc..  A lot of them bought laptops based on looks as well, not even caring about anything else :|

So true dude, so true. the point im trying to get across is they should market computers to people who know nothing about them. The sales person is supposed to translate the Ghz and GBs and all the numbers into something the non-computer nerd user can understand, but not all sales people bother with translating, they just want you to buy the box with the highest numbers and the highest price. Most older people don't realise that a 299 tower and a 199 monitor is all they'll ever need. So many people came in saying "whats your most expensive computer bundle?" Still with the mindset that they'll have to spend more money on their computer in 2009 then they spent on their almost useless 486.

Well intel is sort of doing that with a new rating on their stickers (you know the small stickers that say core 2 duo/quad i7 whatever) that says how good it is out of 5 stars.. meh.

 

I rarely had the people coming in to buy the best, pretty much every customer that came to me wanted to spend the least they could to get the most they could, with a few rare exceptions..
