Did Anybody Buy Sumthing On Dell.ca?

Recommended Posts

hey guys!

my OLDIE laptop JUST died (amen!) and i'm planning to ge ta new one

i looked around but i think the best place to buy a good one is on dell.ca coz we can configurate it and prices are kinda good.

i'm wondering if it's a good choice or not?

if u already bought a laptop on dell.ca or dell.com or whatever, please tell me if u r satisfy with it?

ive never bought a laptop from dell, but Ive gotten some desktops through them and they have been very good.

A bunch of my friends at my school have dell and aside from some batery problems with a few of them, they have been pretty good i think.

I got my last laptop through best buy and it was really bad. It broke many of times (thankfully I had the extended warranty). Now this might just be a function of it having been a gateway, but I was very dissapointed. My laptop was got marked as a lemon (after 1.5 weeks of bestbuy deliberation) and I am picking up my new laptop this weekend (an HP Turion X2) and hopefully that will be good.

All distributors and manufacturers put out bad machines every once in a while so it might not be fair to judge best buy from the one rotten computer I got from them. I was very dissapointed with my service, however, and it seemed endemic (not just the Bloomington, IN) store.

I have had good experiences with Compaq (which is why I grabbed an HP as my replacement at best buy).

Sony's are generally quality machines and Toshibas have a good reputation in laptops. IBM laptops are considered quite reliable as well, I believe.

I just got a Dell laptop off their website in March. I got the Inspiron E1505 and I love it. Widescreen display, plenty of memory, a TV tuner, among other things. Only problem I had was when I deleted a program I thought I didn't need, and it messed up the transfer of memory between the disc drive and the hard drive. Dell Tech support was great though, they sent me the software and a new disc drive, just in case my drive was defective. I do have their extended warranty, simply because I had trouble with the crappy Tangent (who?) I had to buy for college. It was garbage, but had great tech support, so I figured I might as well cover my bases with a nicer computer.

And don't worry about the batteries, as Pierre suggested. That's old news. They recalled the bad batteries months ago, so they are out of circulation.

Is my computer basicly bunk now. It has no more disk space, I've even deleted my roller coaster tycoon game which supposedly freed up 1,000mb but it still says no disk space? What do I do?

I have a Compaq Presario V2000. No complaints. :king:

Your computer spontaneously combusts.

a little late - but - i have a dell laptop - have had the same one for 3 years now - and i'm still satisfied. :)

only problem was the powerchord - but - then again, i wrap it up and stuff it in my briefcase - so - i might be partly the blame for needing a replacement :(

gl with it!
