I bought a Dell from their web site less than a year ago. So far I am pretty happy. Definitely an upgrade from the 10 year old "old glue". I couldn't have done it without help from the forum members. Thanks.

I got a Dell from Best Buy. It was a near top of the line model, just as Dell was introducing new more top of the lines higher than it, so it's screaming fast for it's day, yet significantly discounted compared to the cutting edge stuff. I did find out that you have to be very careful in a retail setting. Salespeople kept trying to substitute lesser processors or change the deal by throwing in things I didn't want and raising the bundle price. Then I also had to insist they honor their deal when they claimed they couldn't "find" the machines they said they had in inventory. You have to assume that salespeople do not know which machines perform better than others, no matter how confident they sound as they make stuff up. It's a lot more hassle than it ought to be.
