But you still can't convince me every person will find exactly what they need for their company in the scope of Dell's offerings or service.
Sorry, didn't clarify,
I meant a desktop Work-station, and that article was suggesting Dell would adopt dual core Opteron, and that's what I was referring to.
But the Dell laptops are not too shabby either, at least they have never given me more trouble than a slime company like Toshiba. Although I do think places like Saeger, Acer, etc make better quality machines. I'm sure everyone has had good and bad experiences with different OEMs, so everyone can do what has worked for themselves; and we can also learn from eachothers' experiences.
