In my experience, they offer the option... not 'expect'. From my own perspective, I prefer this, as it means I get the part quicker, and get working quicker.
Never had a problem with dell service, other than having to jump through a ton of hoops to fix a fault when it's clear what the issue it...
"IT's on fire..."
"Can you press delete to go into bios please..."
"It's on fire"
"We just need to check"
"It's on fire."

But I think that's fairly commonplace

Just shows they are at least 12% overpriced!

They're a business; they obviously charge a large chunk more than their devices actually cost to produce
Any examples of good deals?

With me it was get a screw driver out, unscrew.... etc
1.5 hours on the phone. Time is money.
If I pay for onsite warranty, I expect Dell to come, diagnose and and repair and not expect me do waste my time.
If it is return to base, I expect a collection, repair and return within a week.

Once warranty is over. No questions answered by Dell. Other manufacturers still provide some support/advice.

I am still using a 10-year old Dell Vostro. Newer models, for me were junk. Each one had motherboard failures.
I've had Dell monitors for the last 10 years without experiencing an issue and I'm ready to upgrade from the U2414h. I do want the U2719D but it's over £400 after their discount. In comparison, an LG 4k monitor is £333 on Amazon. So choices choices!

Yep! One arrived a month ago with BSD problems from the start. An engineer came and changed the motherboard (said it was an Intel problem on Windows maintenance). He left and it was BSD within 20 mins. After 2 more days playing, they finally agreed to take it away and sort it (in Germany). It arrived back after 2 and a half weeks and they had changed the SSD. 7 x BSD within 1.5h. Another 4 the following morning. The are coming to take it and refund me tomorrow.

While this was going on, my son's XPS13 died after just over 2 years. I was going to replace the motherboard, but they are £500 a pop! Bought an XPS15 from the outlet with 15% student discount.... Very disappointing
I bought 13" last month and I am quite happy, perhaps except of touchpad which sucks. Otherwise solid laptop.
Also had to lodge claim for TCP as they did not automatically recognised it. Now I got it confirmed
How are the g7 laptop's? Any experiences?
I got a 13in laptop a year or 2 ago and while i did have a return to Germany fault that took 2 weeks they did fix it and it has been fine since. We've been happy with it. (Touch Screen replacement)
Back then the prices were a lot better!

* it did feel a lot heavier after we're got it back though! Was never sure how i could investigate this so have not chased it up.
I have had pretty torid time with my dell inspiron 13 (6th gen i5). Sent it back 5 times to be repaired in first year (each taking bout 3 weeks without the laptop) as they couldnt fix one of the problems multiple times and just reset the laptop and other parts failed. Only and I mean this, only original parts are the cpu, ssd, touchpad and top of keyboard casing. Every single other panel and part has been replaced from the webcam through to the screen (they broke quite a few things when trying to 'fix' the laptop).
Can't say for recent devices, but my Inspiron 7537 from 2014 is still going strong.

I think I'll be switching over to a Matebook X Pro for my next laptop anyway, but personally not had a bad experience with Dell (although I am aware that many do!).
Need 2 laptops
Intel i5 8th Gen
256ssd+ and 1tbhdd+

1 laptop needs to be 17" and the other 1 14"
But they both have to be same laptop

Is that possible?
Currently viewing this page on my ancient Inspiron 17R SE. Its looking a bit worse for wear these days ill admit, but thats because its seen years of abuse and hammer. The 3rd gen i7 (proper quad core+HT, not one of those rebadged, pretend i7 dual cores) is still sharp as a pin. Looking to replace it with a modern equivalent as my grandad is after a laptop and my old 17R SE would be ideal.
Bottom line is, i wouldnt hesitate to buy another Dell - Its been faultless.
Ah great, I needed another device to say "plugged in not charging" after the 53rd week I have it.
12% off is better than full price though!
Anyone know if I can stack this with a student discount?

Dells are more expensive, but they are worth it. In fact last time I had to send something to be repaired, from the moment I handed it to the courier, it was back in my hands within 10 days, and that was being sent to the repair centre in Germany.

Compare that to Acer support who took 3-4 weeks and tried to hold my laptop ransom asking me to pay for them to fix it (got it repaired for free though after I complained)

And ASUS support who straight up deny any problems with their garbage products and refuse to fix things.

10 days is too long. In the good old days in was 4 days.
I am using an 10-year old Dell. The newer ones all had motherboard failures and the worst service ever.
I will not buy Dell again. I also had the, "plugged in not charging" messages on the Chinese made Dells.
Come back, Compaq.
