Dell Computer Corporation Informative - Dell use to make decent computers
I've read tons a complaints about Dell over the past few years, and I must admit most of them seem accurate. Dell has over the years slowly dropped its quality and its customer service to the point where I would no longer buy a Dell if looking for a new computer.
That leads me to the positive side of this review. I am a Dell owner. I have a desktop from 1999. Back in the day when Dell cared about their customer more than the profit. It has been running well for me for almost 7 years! I've upgraded memory and hard drives here and there, but the main core system has been great and very reliable.
To that end, I would only recommend going with a Dell if you are in the market for a used computer and find one from pre-2001. Post 2000-2001, Dell seems to have changed their priorities. No more "burn in" testing, cheaper parts combined with offshoring the customer service equates to a mediocre product with mediocre support.
