UPS ground... going through all the "chuckers", I hope it survives  :smile:

I bought a Dell 700m a couple months ago that was a total lemon.



Headphone jack didn't work out of the box. The next day, it was in pieces on my coffee table, they replaced the motherboard with a refurbished one. The guy fucked it up and the screen did turn off or back on when it was opened or closed. The next day, someone replaced the power buttons and such on top of the keyboard. They left a couple wires hanging out and when I turned it on, the mousepad didn't work. I returned it within a week and got 2 x $100 coupons for all my bitching and complaining. I sold the coupons on ebay for ~$60 each since I had no interest in buying from Dell again. Now at least I'll get a machine that works (knock on wood).

A good reason to stay home from work turned into a horrible experience. They fucked up the shipment. Same T43 series, low end model.

Model#s and S/N#s don't match on the computer and my invoice.

fun

not fun

Already did, shipping was free and it only took 3 days, the only problem is the model I ordered is "out of stock". I wasn't supposed to receive it until Sept. 13th. I'm using the wrong one until then (I decided to abuse it until I get the right one, see if I can find some fun viruses). I told them the longer it takes, the longer I'll be complaining to anyone who will listen. This was my first stop to spread the bad publicity. I'll go to work this afternoon and complain to everyone there. A bunch of rich, old people that buy expensive laptops. Online forums and webblogs will get my posts tonight. I'm pissed, I worked my way up through all the supervisors and coordinators at IBM. They all got an ear full.

I have no idea... Dell could customize, so could IBM. I only looked at newegg once. I wouldn't say Dell is better at anything from my previous experience.

ok, so the shitty, cheapass computer got shipped back to IBM this afternoon. No less than 4 hours after I opened the box. I returned it and canceled the order.

Turns out someone I work with is married to an IBM employee. They get a ~20% discount on purchases. They're gonna buy the right model for me with a $400 discount and put it on my credit card. Might have to wait another week or so, but for that much money, I'm cool.
