Acer Computers

Anyone have any opinions or experience with Acer computers? They strike me as bottom of the barrel low end systems, but given I have never owned one I could be wrong. I have found a screaming deal on an Acer notebook and am hesitant to take the leap. But if they are quality systems, I just may go fo...

Still haven't gotten through to Dell to have this issue resolved. But... Spoke to my Credit Card Company, they show no record of any charge from Dell on my account and there is more then enough credit available to cover the cost of the Notebook I had previously ordered. So seeing Dell never actually...

Thank you for the positive input. I've heard so much good about them that I'm sure it won't be as bad as it seemed dealing with this the sales counter today. I guess I'll find out in three weeks or so when the Notebook arrives. I've also taken out a three year warrenty just in case. I'm still wonder...

Dell Computers

I've been looking at Laptops for well over a year and after comparing prices and specs and just being plain picky I finally placed an order for a LapTop through Dell. I just hung up with them moments ago and talk about frustrating! The sales people are pushy and extremely difficult to understand. Th...

Thanks for the input here folks :) I'll definitely have to set up a regular maintenance schedule, and make sure I crack open each system a couple times a year just to deal with dust build up. Its never caused any issues, that I'm aware of, but I was absolutely shocked at the degree of build up. I kn...

Computer Dust Build Up

I cracked open an old computer case the other day, its been about a year since I've opened up this particular machine. I was floored at the amount of dust build up inside the box and immediately grabbed my compressed air and blew it out and cleaned out all my fans. My computer cases are rarely opene...
