Side note panasonic toughbooks are the shit, there need to be more laptops with touch screens!!! And dells customer servies (what us't to be the rock of that company) is just not helpful. I don't dislike poeple from india, but I just like americans better (Biggest reason I got a falcon was I got to talk to real english speaking americans that cared).
Another friend has an inspiron notebook and the friggin CD drive ejects for no reason.....
Last summer I worked in Chemical research at UT and the lab I worked in DID NOT get new dells...we got Systemax...very well priced desktops (only problem is that they put PC-2700 in a 800MHZ bus system..WTF)
Falcon and AW are some of the bes companies out there. I have heard rare horror stories about AW...nothing bad about Falcon, except price.
Keep in mind, dells have somany deals on them to make a, otherwise piece of SH!T, desireable....I only personally know one person who has had a good experience with dell...my Aunt, she has a old celeron system and it still runs like a champ 3-4 years later.
