Quoting ABfemme (Reply 5): Thinking of purchasing a Dell Computer - they OK ??
I've never had a Dell desktop, so can't speak for those. My laptop however is pretty good. It has had issues, but Dell is very quick on fixing stuff.
Monitor went out. Took the inhouse rep two weeks to attempt a fix with different parts. Finally sent it to Dell, had it back repaired two days later.
Space Bar fell off (I think this was my dog's fault though...lol)
Rubber feet keep falling off. Make sure to superglue them.
Computer wouldn't boot. Motherboard was fried (heat)
AC adapter failed
Now this sounds like a bad deal, but in all cases they were very fast (shipped from MN Monday at 5 PM, had it back Wednesday at 8AM). Just make sure to go with the extended warranty and accident protection. For a desktop I wouldn't worry about accident protection, as the chance of accidentally spill something is minimal, and even then a keyboard or mouse is cheaper to replace than the service plan.
