    Actually, I'm glad you did. I wanted to post something, but wasn't willing to resurrect the thread myself.

    I actually told someone to by an HP yesterday! This was not because HP is a superior product in any way, it was just that the price of a system was lower for a change.

    Both Dell and HP are still lousy computers for the most part, but the average non-tech user should simply buy whatever is cheaper. Anyone wanting an actual good computer should either build it themselves or pay out the a$$ for someone else to do it for them.

    After installing it for them today, Dell bites less. Many more mandatory screens to go through. One in particular really ticked me off. Question was something along the lines of "Do you wish to purchase extended warranty now?" Possible choices to answer:

    1. Yes
    2. No, I have already purchased extended warranty and wish to register now.
    3. Not at this time. Send me more information to make my decision later.

    There was no box to just check no. My only consolation is that the junk email won't be coming to me, but to the person I installed the computer for.

    I can't believe we as consumers let companies get away with this! It's absolutely insane to me that there is no way to just opt out. You can't just say no. You have to say, now, I've already done it, or spam me about it until I cave later... Dell is no better. Heck, I have Adobe Acrobat view 6 and to upgrade to 7 I HAVE to install Yahoo! Toolbar with the upgrade! When you select upgrade to 7, it automatically selects the toolbar with it. From there you can deselect the upgrade, but you can't deselect the toolbar!

    It's infuriating, and marketting such as this should be boycotted whenever the opportunity is given. This is my opinion, but I just don't have the energy to truely boycott and find alternatives to PDF viewers for at home (at work is not an option since I don't make the software decisions) and I already don't buy HP or Dell but when I get a laptop, I'll have to buy from somewhere... Alienware is looking better...

    Upon further review...
    I'll defend HP, only slightly, this morning since I was in a very bad mood when finished with that computer yesterday. The company it was installed at won't be getting spammed by hp. I forgot, email address was an optional field that I left blank. They will be getting spammed by snail mail since an address of some kind had to be entered. I'm still mad that there was no option to just say NO.

    Not that Dell is a better computer or even a better company, but I don't remember any screens like that one when installing a Dell. I've installed around 30 Dells at our company in the last year with no major problems and only 2 minor ones. Both problems were fixed within 24 hrs, one by sending me a complete new computer.

    As far as letting companies get away with this, I suppose you get what you pay for and this company wanted the cheapest computer they could get.

    Yeah... HP also has a great history (1940's +).
    It invented the ink jet printer, created the lightscribe, and made the first pocket calculator. Dell imports cheap electronics, and has a warranty to compensate.

    And this has what to do with making a good computer?
    HP makes great printers - I wouldn't recommend any other.

    btw, will this thread never be left to die? Everything worth saying is in the first 2 pages. To summarize HP vs Dell, who cares? Only buy either of them if you want something cheap and inexpenxive and are good at understanding accents if you need customer service. If you actually want a good computer that does everything you actually need, build it yourself or hire someone you trust to do it for you.
