FORT PIERCE, FLORIDA -- A few years back I purchased a Dell and had to send it back. The A drive did not work and it crashed 3 of of 4 times. One would think I learned from this experience. Nooooooo. I recently purchased a 8400 state of the art. It's tempting due to the rebates and specials. Yes, you save money, but sacrifice everything else. After 3 months, this machines howls every time you turn it on and the dell speaker system has had constant static since day one. Try to get a tech. It's impossible. This is a piece of junk and I urge all future potential purchasers of Dell products to spend extra money and go to a local dealer or purchase from Falcon Nortwest or any other reliable computer company. Dell is a loser.
