Anyone else think Dell machines generally have poor build quality?
I have had a number of dell machines and most of them have had a fault of some kind.
First dell laptop had a faulty hdd that had to be replaced
Second laptop had a faulty optical drive
My next laptop had a faulty harddrive, optical drive, touch pad and keyboard which were all replaced when I sent it in for repait.
A laptop which I bought at the same time but sent back, had something wrong with sound., that everything I played was stuttering.
My first dell desktop has something wrong with one of the hdd's, causing random access and power consumption, sometimes forcing access to stop moentarily
My latest laptop has something wrong with the touch pad, it occasionally freezes the pointer and it won't move or moves very slowly for a few seconds. No idea what's causing this.
All in all, my experience with dell is pretty appaling that I've never owned a dell machine that didn't have a problem of some kind.
On a positive note they do have good warranty support, which is just as well.
