Dell's Privatization Plan Has Finally Been Approved
So the plan, after a long period of debate, has been finalized. Dell will once again be Mr. Michael Dell's own business.
I am quite a fanboy of Dell. Not that like iFanboy to Apple, but I am using my second desktop from Dell, with my 1st one now operated by my Dad, and now I just bought a 17" notebook from Dell, too. (man, I regret so much buy a notebook that large. Trust me, dont buy a notebook that large if you want mobility, a 17" is too damn large and heavy, and is therefore only good as a desktop replacement, and what I want is a notebook for mobility). QC is not exactly that reliable but Dell products are after all protected by somewhat solid warranty services. My current desktop requires me to resit the rams every few months, it's an old XPS with known motherboard design flaw. Other than that, I am generally satisfied. I mean, IBM PC is long gone, so I guess this is the best we can ask for. Once major update of PC tech is out (waiting for new gen of GPU and DDR4 ram), I still plan to buy from Dell.
For your info, my Dells are all made in China. I don't know about Dell in Europe. As I know, for Americans, Dells there are mainly made in Mexica. So how's the quality in your place if you use Dell?
Dell really isnt known for its innovative capabability though. I cannot really name one IT concept invented by it. However, it is very solid in its main business.

We have mostly Dell desktops here and seem to be little problems with them.
Dell Ultrasharp monitors are always recommended. They had the best CRT with their trinitrons (Sony monitors). Wish my did not break when being shipped in a move.
They had their one bad period where they had faulty components and tried to hide it.
Few dell employees I know feel optimistic with the buyout. Better than Icahn buying and dumping the company.

It's like crop rotation but for processors."Halo is designed to make the player think "I look like that, I am macho sitting in my undies with my xbox""

I love it. Its is a beast it does most things i throw at it. It plays most game.
Hopefully we'll see Dell continue.

I have a dell laptop and the battery died exactly one week after the 1 year warranty expired, which sucks. I never buy premade desktops, though, I've always just built my own.

I guess you can try to ask if Dell is willing to cover it as well. My elder brother's PowerPC iMac was somewhat faulty few days after the end of the 3-year warranty, seemed something to do with its DVD drive. He asked nicely to the Mac's Hong Kong distributor (I don't think Mac has distributor in China, at least not back then), and Hong Kong Apple approved the maintenance work.
Computer is just like other electrical appliance. Longevity is depending mainly on luck.
