Gosh! Bitter much?
Does it sound like I'm the "kind of CEO that purchase Inspirons"? Read the bit you quoted, and you'll see I'm not.
Yes, I am bitter, because I have a job dealing with administrative morons. If it weren't for job security I'd be long gone. You did not indicate which models you purchase, but regardless, they're all junk really. A model or two may pop up now and then, but it's unusual.
That said, I haven't seen the U400 series and I'd like to get my hands on one. Does Costco have these on display in store (even though the deal is online only)? Does anyone have these on display?
