What you're paying for when you buy a dell is support, not performance. They use generic parts, and the reason they last isn't because the parts they use are good, it's just that they replace 'em.

they can still perform just fine. the xps, while overpriced, can perform just as well as any overpriced prebuilt.

My ***. When my PSU blew it took them 3 days to reply and told me that I couldn't run anything higher than a 250w and gave me a link to the one that I already had. Of course, by the time they replied I had already bought a 350w PSU.

lmao, call after 12pm you get Habib in India. We run Dells at work(education) and I usually have to sit on the phone for about 1hr on hold..Dell support = worst I've ever seen.

Get something from ibuypower.

Dell's suck.

lol how can a system not run off of anything higher than 250w. tell Dell to die. hmm cuz i thought the parts ran off of the psu... or maybe not because dell has all the leet tricks.
