  Dell Laptop
Dell Computer, a Fortune 500 company based in Round Rock, Texas, was founded by Michael Dell in 1984 but did business under the name PC's Limited.
In 2003, the stock owners decided to change its name to Dell Inc. Dell Computer is perhaps best known for the personal computers it designs, manufactures and sells for home and office use, but Dell is also in the enterprise computing market with servers, data storage devices, network switches and computer cluster lines.
Dell was incorporated as a Texas corporation in 1984 with a capitalization of US$1000, the minimum allowed by Texas law.

Dell replied on April 6 and released an "open letter to college and university students" acknowledging that his company's support could have a potential impact and calling for further discussion.

Dell took part in the final Tate Lecture of the year as he was interviewed by Alan Webber of Fast Magazine at McFarland Auditorium.

In essence, the computers and monitors sentenced to death in landfills have been given a second life in newly established recycled electronic goods markets.
The fast pace of technological development has rendered many computers "obsolete," but these older systems are still capable of providing sufficient capabilities for everyday use.

The slime at Dell Finance kept insisting that my father pay for the computer that he sent back, the same computer that Dell would agree had in fact been returned to them completely intact.
Dell has three lines of laptops: the Inspiron, which is essentially the consumer model, the Latitude, which is for business use (and the model line Dell employees is issued), and the Precision, which are scientific workstation level machines.
Dell agreed to take back my Inspiron 5150 even though it was past the 21-day return period by the time they heard me screaming.

Rather, a look at two recent computer purchases by the district reveals that Alum Rock may have spent close to $150,000 more than it had to--no small amount for an urban district that has experienced more than a decade of financial troubles and sent layoff notices to 400 employees last month.
The district recommendation was to go with Dell computers, which was the higher bids.
Further, one of the more befuddling aspects of the situation was that HP was offering more incentives than Dell, including better educational software, warranties, trade-in offers and its bonus program, which would have allowed the district to acquire more equipment at a cheap price.

 Consumer complaints about Dell Computers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Fact is, Dell so far has come to dominate every market segment it's moved into and is at the moment making a good dent in the printer market and the corporate server sector.
On the other hand, even though the very laptop on which the survey story was written crashed and burned just a day later, our own James R. Hood concedes in To Dell and Back, his arresting tale of being laptopless for a day, that Dell tech support often gets it right.
We'd say Dell offers good equipment at a great price but if you never want to open the lid of your computer and have no patience with troubleshooting by phone, then you should probably buy a machine from a local geek-owned computer store.
