Well; All’s Well that ends Well….
Lappy ordered Thursday, ….. Touched down in the Big Apple Tuesday Morning. Unreal! That’s fast! Came with the 60 GB 7200, but we won’t go into that…. And not exactly a cute little thing,… more like a Great Big Brute; but lets face it Folks, …..the most important thing is that the Baby’s healthy.
Just to clarify a couple of points to anyone who’s about to order a Lappy. Firstly, if you want to change your configuration after ordering, say a faster processor comes out, or a bigger Hard Drive for example, there’s absolutely no problem to do that. They don’t CANCEL your order, so to speak, like they state on the website as such; (this is simply BAD wording on Dell’s part,) they just cancel that specific configuration and reorder another one. I was lucky to get a 35% coupon, and thought that if I “cancelled” my order due to a stupid hard drive upgrade, then I would lose the original 35% discount I got, basically, because the coupon had a life of about 12 mins. (Actually, I think it was one day.) I was even told this, by some Donut, on Dell’s CHAT thingy. But that’s a load of Bull. Dell still honors the Coupon discount. I believe even up to 21 days after purchase. That; (I THINK), even applies to Accessories, Spare AC adapters etc etc. So basically if any of you have just ordered a Lappy with that 35%; you may wanna rethink that Spare AC adapter or “Accessory” you were drooling over. I made the mistake of rushing through my order, thinking,,,,Yeah, Yeah, - this whole page is just software, Oh God, and this page is for Donuts who need Dell Assisted Online Training…. ( The smooth, rounded, rectangular “Rat” looking thing, with a long wire coming out of it Ass, generally referred to, in the industry, as a “Mouse”; typically has 2 buttons on the front of it for eyes, and a Mohawk, which we refer to as a scroll button) …..etc. etc… Lets Go, Lets Go, Gotta Check Out, Gotta Check Out,….. cuz all the time, you got in the back of your mind – “If I’m the six thousand and first Frigging Coupon user on this Sucker; - I’ll go Frigging Bananas!!!”
Have been really busy today, but got home tonight and actually reread this whole damn thread again, just for a laugh, every page,….. Wow!, This thread really kicked up a Firestorm. Glad some of you got a good laugh out of it, and am sorry if I upset a few others. Jeez,… It really got pretty damn Heated Up in here for a while.
Secondly, One more word of advice,…. This is the Dell XPS Gen 2/9300 Forum,… in Real World terms, It’s only for the rich kids on the block. But more importantly, for those of you that are Shooting your Mouths Off to your Wives, Girlfriends, Husbands or Boyfriends; that you’re about to get …..A State of the Art; Kick Ass, MotherF**ker 17 Inch Widescrean Lappy from Hell!..... Rethink it! Because, I guarantee you, that that new car, she’s about to buy, is gonna NOW get the Top of the Line 18 Inch Mags, with the LOW profile slicks, ….or that Diamond Ring you’re about to buy is gonna get a couple extra carrots added to it. And when you Whip Around to face her with your Mouth Open and that “YOU WHAT” look on your face,……. She’s just gonna Smile Sweetly and glance over at that Big Beautiful 17 Inch LCD screen; Sitting oh so Proudly on the table. Then you can Shut Your Mouth,… trying to avoid Biting through your Lip;…… because Now …You Know You’re Screwed. …… Enjoy it! Hell; It Cost Serious Money !!!
