FRIGGIN' DELL

I officially have two stripes creeping down my laptop screen. The evil forces are against me. It is really making my already bad headache worse. I have to send my laptop to Dell to be repaired. At least I have a year and half left on my three year warranty. I haven't had this sucker for two years and I've had to replace the ac adapter, the hard drive, and now who the hell knows what else. I have another computer, so that's cool. I can still do what I need to do. The laptop is convenient so that I can get in a reclined position after my legs have suffered all day. Suffered is a bit of an overstatement, but I lack proper terms tonight.

Anyway...I'm feeling less than creative today. I thought I'd share a hockey haiku from Poch and Davidson (gotta site them).

We ate ice! That's what
we did before squirt bottles!
Sweat-drenched skate-shaved ice!

Mmmm...wonder if it had that sweet-salty taste of Gatorade?

Sounds like a Dell to me alright.

That's why the new computer I bought when the hard drive died did not have Dell anywhere on it!

There isn't a single brand name of computer equipment out there that I've used (as in not a Mac) that I can say is fail-proof. They all outsource some part of the manufacturing (like the batteries) so there's no guarantee.

Of course, I'm just about to venture into the world of Macs so I may finally have something nice to say.

Hope you have a good experience.

She won't

RT said...

Maybe she will.

Hope it didn't come with one of those spontaneously combusting batteries!

RT said...

Believe it or not, the battery I have was not on the list. Go figure.
