I respectfully disagree with your comments about Dell. I am typing this on a 7 year old Dell computer. I have 1 laptop that is 5 years old, a 1 year old laptop and a 3 month old desktop. I have had issues with support in regards to the laptop and the English language, but it was resolved. I have dealt with many companies and their offshore tech support. Dell is no different in that respect, except I was able to ge them to transfer me to America and my problem was fixed. Others I haven't gottten anywhere and have had the same problen and was stuck resolving it myself.
Dell has overall been good to me. Yes, they have pissed me off when I have an issuse, but they have been one of a few I have been able to contact to get issues resolved.
Well to each his own, Dell seems like it has some decent support, but for the price you pay to get a Dell with support, it seems like you could build your own or get a good custom computer for much less. The custom built computer stores may not have the best support but the ones with a good reputation will provide a good product. In the end, if you have the know how to build your own, I think that is the way to go. There is a ton of videos and information on the web to be able to do it yourself.
I'd be willing to help anyone that is planning on building their own.
