Lock the thread if you must, I don't care.
Way to keep me from reading your secret text guys...

It probably should have been in the coffee lounge all along anyway.
btw, I didn't realize it was "secret text" since I'm wearing my glasses. lol

Yeah! we found a way to trick people with glasses!

I've got glasses... I only wear them so my eyes don't get strained.
Now my eyes are all out of whack because I'm working on the computer so much and I actually NEED my glasses for clearer vision.

Ok...so I'm new to this old thread. Found it by accident and DON'T know why I read through it. But I do have a quick "history lesson" to provide:
My folks rented a home (while they built theirs) quite a few years ago from a guy high-up in Dell. He informed them that he had just been a meeting with the powers that be in which they had decided that they were going to have to create a new "inferior" (to their own personal standards) PC to compete in the retail market (he actually named HP & Compaq as some of the competitors causing this to have to happen). The new line would not replace, but would be in addition to, their top-of-the-line computers (which would in turn be marketed to large companies instead of the general public). This might explain why this debate is happening.
Funny how supply & demand doesn't always mean better product for less $$. Same situation/different product: My husband builds high quality homes - but the majority of the market buys from inferior workers & products. These builders that are 'undermining' the consumers rely on the fact that the average person cannot build their own home (sub: 'computer') and they do not realize what quality they are sacrificing behind all the pretty "bells & whistles". They cater to the consumer who wants it done cheaper and faster, not seeing the benefit in spending the $$ for the better product.
As far as the avg PC consumer out there - I believe most aren't willing to put $$$ into their purchase since they realize their PC will be built with obsolete technology before the 3 yr warranty runs out and they don't know how to upgrade it themselves.

Well, I deem this thread closed... Maybe if it were moved to the Coffee lounge it could get some new life? *hint hint*
Well, if this is the end of Dell vs HP, I'd like this thread to go out with this Get Fuzzy comic I found... (attached)

HP vs Dell
Sorry to bring this back up but i think you people are just saying how good dell is or how bad they suck because some other people are saying it.
If you are talking the Sizes of the 2 companys then Hp is about 5 times larger than dell.but if you are talking how good they are well ill just say this all computers have there problems and lately dell isnt been getting good reviews at all,I mean its pretty bad when a gateway is better than a dell or anything for that matter.
Right now as far as i know Dell and Hp are the biggest rivals there is,to sit here and say Hp suck thats just stupid and the same for dell,if they suck so bad then why are they so damn popular?.
So before you people wanna put down either of them think before you talk about them.
Sorry for any misspelling.

That is true (Maybe for some). But, who are the other people? Aren't they the ones who have had troubles with Dell? I have acknowledged that Dell is not as bad as I thought it was, but there are still things true about HP which will never be true about Dell.
