Likely bought my last Dell laptop
I first was introduced to Dell lappys in 2005 at work. My Fortune 500 company because a Dell shop, and when it came time to upgrade my IBM lappy, I got a Dell Latitiude. I love love it. It was nothing fancy, just a good, solid computr that gave me two problem free years. As is our policy, I get a new one every two years. So, I'm on my third Dell ah the office.
Having a good experience at the office, I decided to get a Dell for home. I got my first one back in 2006 ( think it as in Inpsiron). It was a good lappy, with no problems other thaapparent planned obsolescence at one year on the batter (which isnt cheap). After two years, I bought another Inspiron. Alost three yearsa, it worked great other than the hinges on the screen went bad on my, and I couldnt keep the screen open without propping it up with a pillow. It was quite annoying, plus I got the one year on the battery an it had to be replaced. Now, I'm on my third personal laptop, and it's another Dell Inspiron (N5030). From the time I took it out of the box, it had a cheap feel to it. The keyboard is clickity/clackaty, and the body has deveoped a crack in the lower left-hand corner that coninues to creep. And to top it off, the planned obsolescence of the battery was almost to the day one year after I bought it. And in two short weeks, the computer will not operate unless plugged in. There will be no beating around the bush to buy a battery.
Dell laptop quality is not what it used to be. I've owned or heavlily used six since 2005. And there is absolutely no doubt in my mind this is true. I've never looked at any other brand of laptop (yeah foolish, I know), but when I buy a new one here later this year, I, for sure, will not look at at a cheaply made Dell. I dont mind spending a little money on a good lappy, but not on a Dell. I dont understand why they took away the solid feel and good quality other than to save money 9n the manufacture. To be sure, I will tell every one I know, and I will push my company to give my any brand other than Dell.
It's really sad that Dell decided to go the cheap route. They will respond and say they have numbers and surveys to the contrary. But this man has used six of them and there's no better knowlege that using them for yoursslevs, and I'm tellig you, Dell ain't what it used to be. Bottom line.
By the way, this email was prompted by my having to reboot my Inspirn seven times over the course of two yours. Very aggravating.
