Why I Will NEVER Buy another Dell Computer!
Buying a computer is not only time consuming, expensive and often times frustrating, but it is also an exciting time because...who doesn't love to get a new computer.
I have found that computers, be it a laptop, a PC or a tablet, only last a few years no matter how much money one invests in the little beggars. BUT.....it hasn't always been like that. The very first Dell I purchased was a great little laptop. It performed beautifully until all of the keys stuck but even knw, years later, I can use a mouse and pretty much work my way through the Internet or play my favorite game, Sid Meyers CIVILIZATION II. That Dell was sturdy, dependable, it was encased in metal, the battery life phenomenal, the Internet connection dependable. And then I decided the old laptop needed to be retired, left in a corner, and replaced with a spanking new Dell Laptop.
What a disappointment! The cheap plastic cover, the never-ending pop-out of Windows-lousy-8 and the constant "not responding" messages which I keep getting on my frozen screen. I HATE the thing! And because Dell let me down so hard, I will never invest in another Dell computer. They are now too cheap to waste money on.
I just replaced the "new" Dell with an HP which I thought had a questionable reputation, but it is twice the computer the Dell is. I can at least stroll through the Internet without wanting to toss the thing against the wall or at best dump it into the garbage. This little laptop is made of plastic but it doesn't feel cheap the way the Dell does. Yes, the right side panel does occasionally pop out but it isn't a complete annoyance and all the time. Unlike the Dell, I can almost always connect to the Internet on my own Internet service which the Dell constantly dropped for the only reason it has ever given.....Service is limited.....strange.....the service on my old Dell and my new HP is never limited. They seem to be able to find the Internet....it's the new Dell which seems to lose its way into cyberspace.
Nope.....no more Dell computers for me. They should have stuck with the old way of doing things because the new way just sucks!
