yes I started a poll to see what people thought of the design overall. The poll results speak for themselves don't you think?
If you don't care about the looks or what people say about it, why in the world are you attacking me on the point lol? Come on now.. What am I going to achieve you might ask? Well in the short term there is usually little gain, however in the long run market research could have the potential to get the next generation redesigned in a more appealing fashion.... If people do not speak up, nothing changes...
As far as Solapathys's expectations are concerned? -that's not your concern!
And I have owned a plethora of laptops by Dell & I am excersising my right as a paying customer to comment as I please
Attacked you personally,OK,yeah,I climbed through the fibre optics and attacked you personally.......did it hurt? BTW,go and have a look,I've put what I could remember back in that thread with a couple of additions.
Your poll,yes its a resounding blow for Dell to have 100 or so people vote on its looks (of which roughly a third were not that bothered)on an ethusiast forum where users tend to have pretty fixed ideas on what they like,and as history has shown,tend to be very critical of any new model until they get some good pictures and samples reviewed.
I would hardly say I'm "attacking" you on this,just pointing out that the looks were important enough for YOU to start a poll on them.
I don't have any problem with people stating their opinions,like you,I think it leads to better products and changes,but at this point there is no point going on and on about it as its not going to change anything now.
Love it or hate it,thats the way it is.
As far as your expectations are concerned,I was genuinely interested to know what you think Dell should do given the hardware they have available to them at the moment,and I thought with you being the all knowing,all seeing eye that you are,might have some clever solution to the possible performance problems some of you think its going to have....but no,all I got was a lame "its not your concern".
Yes,I do have a real problem with you,I think you are a pompous ass who is negative about everything unless it is something you own or have done.
