I have given them serious consideration, however I would have to sell a cub to afford it, even after I get a refund on the Dell.Todd W wrote:Just get an Apple. The time frustration you then save can be spent on cubs instead

I'm not an expert on the detail comparison between Dell and this, but I do know the keyboard, mouse, monitor from you old computer should work on this.
My apple is 6 years old and is still working fine for everyday use. Sometimes factoring in the amount of years you get out of a computer helps to offset initial cost spent upfront

Apples don't like that. Therefore I don't buy Apples. Now an Orange - that be a different ball of wax

My reason for starting this thread was to get people to realize that Dell, and I later learnedRudi wrote:...........
Now to kinda get back on topic. Dell nor any other computer company really likes to handle software issues, but since they purchase bulk licenses from Microsoft, they have no choice but to maintain the software that comes ready to install with OEM specific run routines. Each manufacturer is different and their install routines are model specific and not interchangeable even within their product lines. For example a Dell Lattitude C-600 install routine would not work in the next gen of the C series or any other. Therefore they are responsible. Microsoft even states this on their website software support areas. Very important........-

2. How do I know who provides support for my Windows desktop operating system?
If you obtained a retail (packaged product) copy of a Windows desktop operating system you are eligible for support from Microsoft, subject to the Support Lifecycle policy and to the support terms and conditions that were in place at the time of purchase. If you acquired your Windows desktop operating system through a Microsoft Volume Licensing program or from an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Microsoft offers access to a wealth of online self-help support content in addition to paid support offerings. If you acquired your Windows desktop operating system through an OEM, contact your OEM for more information about the support offerings for Windows desktop operating systems from that OEM.
