flaming laptops!

a couple of hours ago, I purchased Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop and then read gregg caruso's post about flaming Dell laptops (with pictures) and his comment:

"I'm not a big fan of Dell computers. Last year I went through three replacement computers on a new purchase and finally switched to Mac. Both the service and the quality were extremely poor and I eventually needed to file a claim with the better business bureau."

This was the third Dell we've purchased since 2000 and so far I've been delighted with them. But we'll see!

Great. I just bought a Dell laptop three months ago. Hope it doesn't burn my apartment down!

You could have bought a flaming Mac instead:

We bought our first computer in 1984; it was a Mac 512K. We have had Macs ever since (except we did have a Gateway for the family computer for awhile). There is no comparison.

My school provides me with a Dell D600 Latitude, and I hate the keyboard, the funky dumb things it does, and the rigamarole it requires -- I seem to be signing in all the time.

Moses == manual typewriter
John Baptist == Dell (or PC)
Jesus == Apple Mac
