Tell me, can you show me a major retailer that has a lower price for the same configuration? What games do they play in sales? Support isn't as great as it could be, but I still love it. What major company's tech support is not outsourced? Well, E-Machines, but their support still sucks. What major company does not use proprietary features?
"And lastly it's Dell. They are not a technology innovator/creator/company they're a technology warehouse. They purchase the cheapest parts and sell them for the most profit. They sell in bulk and care only about the bottom line.
Other than that I just plain don't like them. Just my opinion. I could be wrong. "
They know how to do business. They don't do new stuff because that's risky. They do tested and proven things that are guaranteed to make money. If you ran a business, I doubt you would be different. They don't purchase the cheapest parts. They use very good parts. Sure, they get them for cheap, but that doesn't mean they're the cheapest parts. I abuse my system a lot, and no problems at all with the hardware. What do you mean they sell in bulk? They let each customer configure the computer they way they want to. To do that, you can't sell in bulk, nor can you build systems before they are ordered. The only time I've seen Dell sell in bulk is when they sell from QVC or something.
"dell laptops feel and look cheap "
I'll agree that the older ones do. The newer ones do not, especially the 9300 and the XPS. The Latitude line is built very solidly, as is the Precision systems.
Anyway, Dell systems are good quality for cheap. There are other companies out there who are good quality too. Sony is good quality, but overpriced, and the support sucks. IBM is the best in quality, but overpriced.
Anyway, a major reason to go with Dell is the warranty, especially on laptops. That Complete Care coverage is awesome. On a laptop, I would only get 4 years on the warranty and Complete Care for the same time period, no matter what company I buy from. Although, the company will most likely be Dell. I doubt anyone can beat their price, even if they can beat the warranty.

i personally do not know the difference between mass production and quality and therefore I lack distinction? (how does anyone know this about me?)

Cheap or broke? Well I certainly like to save money interestingly enough that is something people like, spending less! Even if they are as rich as Bush
6800go, 6800ultra, P-M2.13 GHz, DDR-II Ram @ 667 MHz, WUXGA notebook LCDs, Dual Core Pentium 4s
Yep, all 2003 technology

Dells are middle of the road systems. How much you put your personal worth into your laptop is your problem. As for your name calling, Well I would just say Pot meet Kettle.
