In the last 2 years I've bought from Dell only,that being a I8600,D600,M60,
M70,and a D610 currently,Dell have improved the construction of their notebooks in the last couple of years,but I can't help but think they are slipping behind other makers with the screens they are fitting now compared to when the I8600 was in its heyday,I find myself looking more and more at the opposition screens going,mmm,that looks better than mine.
Seems to be a lot of dissatisfaction with Dell screens in the last year or so going by this forum...I wonder if they will do anything about it....
Still,dell is unmatched for being able to configure things the way you want which for me,is their biggest drawcard and the fact that even though they are such a large corporation with large corp problems,they do actually TRY to offer a satisfying customer experience especially after sale,which is more than can be said for the likes of HP and Sony,in my part of the world anyway.
I'll probably buy Dell again but not at the cutting edge anymore,they tend to radically drop prices on new models after about a month or two,which the other makers don't seem to do to the same degree,I got severely ripped off on the M70 I bought,after 2 months I could have bought the same spec for NZD1500.00 cheaper and that was after I was supposedly given a 1000.00 off when I bought it.
