I have had excellent results with both Dell and HP. In the case of Dell, twice they have shipped over night parts I required that were under warranty at no cost to myself. I think it is a little naive to feel that a company is suppose to support any product that they are not actively associated with. There cheaper models do use quite a bit of legacy products; however, the intermediate and top end machines are far better. They also offer the customer far more ways to customize the product. -- Jerry ges...@yahoo.com The bugs you have to avoid are the ones that give the user not only the inclination to get on a plane, but also the time.
