Default I just hate computers! Dell's Suck****

Well about 6 months ago I bought a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop and thought life was grand. Boy,was I wrong.Then a couple months ago the hard drive fried.
I bought it on Ebay from a dealer in AZ.,for a great price but didn't know that Dell registers their computers to the dealer,and then you have to get it changed into your name. It would be a simple process if I knew the persons name but I had no clue who this person was-I Bought It On Ebay,from a person 1000 miles from where I live so Dell wouldn't register it in my name without me knowing who this person was.
Well after a few days cussing everyone at Dell that I could on the phone they finally registered it in my name, but I would have to wait 5 business days before they would send my New hard drive. When I received it,it wasn't new but a refurbished one,and this morning when I tried to use my computer it fried too. Being the mild tempered person that I am,all 6'3"-250lbs of me. I tried to see just how far my fist would go into this stupid piece of ^*@#. And it went pretty far,completely destroying the keyboard and mouse area of it. Now I have a nice new Toshiba and will be sending the Dell back. LOL,that was so much fun.

Now Mark F, How do you think I should blame EBAY? I happen to like EBAY,with exception to their firearms rules and PayPal. But I don't understand why Dell would register their products to the dealers name to begin with. I have never heard of any consumer goods being handled in that manner. It isn't Ebay,or the Dealers fault that Dell makes a crappy product.
I take it you know A.B. in Bedford,I've known him for years,when he had his shop in Grapevine.

Tx - While I share your distaste, and Rage-O-Meter reaction, when things I have purchased don't work accordingly - I think you might need a hug.

I hope the new computer is treating you MUCH better and has learned it's lesson from the old one....

Yes sir, I know A.B. quite well. I bought 7 handguns from him this year, and tons of ammo. I go to his shop at least twice a week...

With EBAY stuff you can't put your hands on it before you buy...

Thanks JD,Usually my Rage-O-Meter stays in the green,but with my new job I work all night and needed to use my Laptop to pay some bills when I got home and when it didn't work,I had to release some stress. IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY,and cheaper than a shrink. PS, Thanks for caring with the hug mention! THB
