Dude, Don't get a Dell.

Remember the "Dude, you're getting a Dell" guy?

So here's my complaint of the moment: My effing computer crashed! The one I bought in DECEMBER! The one I defragment every single week, without fail, constantly update my spyware and anti-virus protection, and allllways power down the way I'm supposed to! Ugh.

All of the sudden I'm getting this unintelligible error code followed by a "No bootable devices" message. "Press F1 to reboot". What? I thought there were no bootable devices? How can I reboot something that isn't booting in the first place? Oy vey. After thirty plus minutes on hold after calling the Dell 24/7 helpline, spending twenty minutes on the phone with someone in India, we (the guy on the phone & I) decided that I need a new harddrive. Flippin' sweet. Send it on over. Have I been backing up my files? Noooo. Do I wish I bought a Mac? Yesssss.

Press F1 to reboot? Press F2 to kiss my @$$, Dell. A word of advice, if you decide to buy a Dell, do yourself a favor and buy the extended warranty, folks. Odds are, you're gonna need it!

Here's hoping your week is going better than mine!

Before I say anything, I just wanted to mention that I totally had a crush on the "Dude you're getting a Dell" guy back in the day.

Anyways, my Dell has gotten the blue screen of death like 4 times. Thankfully we know someone that can fix it and has every time. But it sucks and it's scary and it's slow and I want to throw it out the window.

So we bought a Macbook last week and it should be here Thursday! I can't wait.

Wow, I'm sorry it crashed. I'd be so pissed. Vito & I have a dell laptop that we've had for 4 years now and the only problem we have is the cord like to fall out often. If only I could find extra money so I could buy a mac!

Okay, so in Dell's defense...I recieved my new harddrive in the mail this morning. That's pretty decent service, right? I just wish it hadn't freakin' crashed in the first place! =-)

Did the Dell guy get arrested for child porn or something like that? The commercials were annoying back in the day.
