    Ick a dell 'quality' Microsoft branded bit of hardware, they did so well with the surface, to trade it in for ice cream container construction is stupid. A very Balmer move.

    I guess dell has tech MS may want, they seem to have mastered the broken and useless so you need a new one each year manufacturing process. I know lots of people have had good experiences with them but I've never had a good Dell.

    I must say of the providers we have used Dell are by far the best and less costly than some we have used giving us poor service/support. I must say I don't like this potential tie-up with the changes it might bring.
