Notebook Kaput

After only 1.5 years, my Dell notebook gave up on me. The OS refused to bootup (even in safe mode) due to hard disk failure. I believe I've been targeted by the PC Fair Troll. I'm seriously considering a Macbook. Only the price is stopping me from running out to get it. With a Mac I don't have to worry so much about patches and will have most, if not all, of my most frequently used applications. How? How?! Grrrrr!


  • So kesian! From my past experience, Dell products are "designed" to last until the 1 year warranty period. My company projector went kaput after 1 year, now I am backing up all data in my Dell notebook as it is approaching 1 year. Sigh....

  • My DELL is 3 years old and going strong. Another thing is buy extended warranty. So far no problems at all with the laptop, never hangs etc. Only slowing down as I have more stuff on it.. mainly caused by Norton Security and AV 2006

    Once you go Mac, you neva go back...!!

    I'm a proud owner of a black Macbook 2.0Ghz laptop! I hardly had any problems that is associated with the pathetic Windows OS!! It's great, been using it for almost a year, and the features are just awesome... visual friendly, and user friendly!

    If you'd like to arrange a test drive, please do not hesitate to call my numbaaaa...

    Ahahha.. I sound like a Mac salesman! But I might as well be one!!

    I'm sold on Mac..!!

  • Man..your notebook reminded me of my dell desktop. It went kaput after 1 yr too. Apparently something happened to the motherboard and it refused to boot. That is the reason why i got my Acer notebook. So far, so good. Nothing crappy happened.
