Not trying to take away from the spirit of this idea, But......

IMHO Dell can take their entire product line, put it in a BIG truck and drop the entire lot off at the nearest recycling center.

The world would be a better place.

Only slightly cranky

Wifey's laptop was rather nice, for a PIII 600.  I think she'd still be using it except for the "sky diving" accident.  Doh

Depends on the HP as well, this one has been very stable, but they have recalled 8 of the 20 newer ones........

Only appreciable time spent with a Dell lappy was a few years ago and it was a slow turd right out of the box, a very overpriced one at that.  Have had much better experiences with HP and Toshibas.

My HP notebook dates back to when Intel's 2.4ghz P-4s were top of the line...
Just started to die last year...

to some extent...not too sure i'd say it's tastes so much as experiences.  if one always has bad experiences with x, they're not gonna have pleasant thoughts about it. lol

personal choice is based on what....how pretty something looks, or good/bad experiences as a result of making the choice in the past?  i choose the latter lol
