It lives! My monster lives!
Oy Vey, I never thought I'd see this thread again:rolleyes:
There is no doubt its resurrection will be unnoticed *peers over shoulder*
Well, here's my take on it.
In the time that this thread has been lost to the torrents of time, Dell and HP have been at each other's throats (as usual).
Both have improved, but I still believe that HP comes out on top. Both vendors' laptops have improved in design, although dell laptops look like folding silver bricks. HP laptops are very streamlined. The 9000t model is their best laptop, and should work well. I just looked at the Inspiron 1505. It starts you out with a 1.6 dual 2 core processor (intel) and the 9000t starts you out with a 1.73 dual core processor (also intel), a 256mb graphics card and a dvd burner. Still, thats just my brand loyalty talking. (aren't I just a lovely loyal servent?:p)
I've never had problems with an HP, hardware or software. Just remember to use all the good anti-virus and spyware scanners to keep the system clean.
Besides, Dell bought alienware:( and HP supports linux! :D
And don't forget to vote for HP in the poll! :D
*Gives HP vs Dell a Medikit*
lol I forgot all about this forum till i got a email saying that Dell vs HP had another post in it (now im addicted again XD )
Dell has improved in that it is supporting AMD's now... (to bad that intel pwns amd with the Core2 Duo :D)
Dell (and alienware) Have been part in a debate on trying to rig reviews as well :'(
I dont have the link here.. I will edit it in later. (on slashdot i think)
HP have gotten better batteries for their laptops now as well (compaired to Dell) and/or better power management acording to my test with some equally priced Laptops and battermark :-)
HP came out top by about 1.5 hours :D
Vote HP for leader of Poll! :D
