Dell is to frigging hard to buy from. I cut them off three years ago because I had to email Michael Dell himself to buy a PC, his order takers could not take an order. He did respond too along with a couple managers.

Having said that, I have been trying to buy an Xbox Elite bundle from Dell using various discount codes found online. for weeks Three times the code had reached the maximum order limit and the Dell website said so. Two other times I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out why my credit card would not work. The last time I called Dell while looking at my order waiting to be paid with the correct price after discount. It still would not take my order and required more account verification.

The Dell dude on the phone said the coupon had reached the maximum even though there was no indication of that on my laptop. I am emailing Michael again. Enough is enough.

I hate Dell less today. Michael had a minion send me $75 off coupon and reserve an Xbox Elite for me. Going straight to the top works most of the time.

Dell sells crap, I wouldn't buy their crap if it was 50% off with a $75 off coupon on top of it. The state use to have a contract with them and us contractors had to buy from Dell if we wanted to get reimburst. Nothing but problems with their junk. I finally told the state to shove their reimbursement where the sun don't shine and did a deal with HP, which actually gave us 25% off to switch to them and even gave us huge discounts on some trading in of equipment. On the RARE occasion that a computer needs fixing over night service on site. Every piece of equipment we buy has a 3 year warranty.

Michael Dell can Kiss my... Well you know! If Dell was worth a crap, one would never have to go to the top!

Damn Dab, calm down. I am just buying an Xbox Elite for my kids, lol. Do you need Michael's email address?

My last 3 computer purchases were a MacBook, HP Pavilion desktop and a Toshiba laptop.

Just because I have a strong opinion of how crappy Dell products are don't mean I am worked up. I don't need Michael's address, phone number or anything else, I won't ever buy anything from them EVER again it is simple as that. They have also lost their state contract, which has now gone with HP.

You are the one that started the thread how you hate Dell, I was just concuring and gave the facts as to why. I know you don't usually post much in the way of facts. I am suprised you didn't post pictures. Micheal Dell with turbin on or something. hehehe

It must have been a hell of a deal from Dell for you not to go to a Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, Circuit City, Fry's, GameStop or any other brick and mortar store that sells video game systems where you could just walk in and buy it.

Dell has been running discount codes for the Xbox Elite bundle for up to $90 off Best Buy and Circuit City pricing. I ask Mr. Google for the coupon codes and sometimes he gives me one.

What I post seems to upset you DAB. For this I will not worry, but I will pray for you.
Not upset at all Rich, you read way too much into what I post apparently. You certainly can't take a joke that is for sure (you did see the hehehe didn't you). But I do appreciate the prayers, LORD knows we all need that.
