Dell is now private; thank god!
If it were public I'd avoid it.
I sense that Dell has a problem with its order entry system.
I ordered a laptop from the Dell website.
The site performed well and I got e-mail order confirmation.
The charge flowed through my credit card account flawlessly.
Then, problems started.
A day later I got an e-mail from Dell.
Shipment of my laptop is stopped.
Dell-finance wants me to contact them to confirm some info.
I have been trying for 3 days to get through to Dell to
give them the info they want.
All phone lines into Dell are busy.
Imagine, me a customer standing in front of a Dell store waving a hand full of money and yelling, 'Hello!?'
They have dell-laptop sitting on a shelf which is collecting dust.
But they ignore me because they are distracted by Facebook on their ... iPhone.
