    Dell support:
    1. I bought 3rd party ram and forgot to switch off power while changing and called them - they replace notebook 1-to-1 after unsuccessfully trying to help over the phone.
    2. PC crash due to 'user' problem - they change motherboard and power supply next day.
    3. Projector remote spoiled - they deliver new remote.
    4. I have submitted online order but want to make changes - call and it's done.
    5. Price-performance ratio is unbeatable.
    6. Latitude kicked onto concrete floor accidentally while give presentation - no problem - slight dent on corner of LCD cover, but still perfectly functional.
    7. Complete Cover for $300+. Covers all accidental damage.
    8. Complete Cove + Guard. Guard is $80 theft insurance for notebooks. 1 for 1 replacement if stolen. Corporate customers only - just start a corporate account for your 'home office'!

    For personal use I'll either get a Dell or MacBook (cos it has applications that PCs don't).[/QUOTE]

    Wow! These are unsurpassed customer service!

    Precision Mobile... think he config liao e price really rocket up. But yes, that's e real deal.

    Actually, Quadro cards are just normal Ge Force cards with additional add ons geared for CADs. Not sure how true though...

    No matter what, don't get XP Media Centre Edition.. kinda problematic..

    1 of my friend is using it. Can't even use her card reader, while systems running XP Home and Pro can detect, read/write flawlessly.

    Lenovo, but not the Lenovo notebook, but the IBM thinkpad. I have been using the T and X series....build like a tank....actually waited for it to spoil(So I abuse it, like never off it for months) to get new one. But it refuse to die. So end up having a few thinkpad at home now

    Used dell, Acer, HP, NEC all quite crappy!!! Managed Dell supply chain before...don't buy from them during month end. Their production line is like mad house and QC is like err....
