    I was wondering for those of you whom have had more experience with Dell then I have, is if there customer service is always this bad in terms of the 9100 and XPS? Last computer I ordered from them is my desktop, the Dimension 4100 back when it first came out and that order got delayed too! what should I expect if my laptop breaks? Are they gonna give me the loop around and not tell me the truth and make we wait a year to fix it?

    On the way I hope!!! Dell Inspiron 9100
    P4 3.0, 15.4 UXGA Wide Screen, 512 DDR SDRAM 400MHz, 128MB ATI Mobility Radeon 9700, 60 GB Ultra ATA HD, 24x CD-RW/DVD, TrueMobile1400 WLAN!

    In my experience with Dell Laptops, customer service is very hit or miss...some days it's great, other days it's horrible.

    I have found that talking to tech support is also hit or miss with them...some will do an outstanding job of helping you out, others will be completely clueless and simply anger you.

    You just gotta hope you can talk to someone who is nice and knowledgeable

    So, v-balla6, you ordered your Inspiron 9100 laptop in March of 2004? Have you received it yet?

    Lol

    I was just checking - maybe our little 6 week delays are really nothing compared to this guy's wait. :)

    Anyway, it seems that "some things never change"

    Don't worry, mtylerjr, I got the joke, and it's a good one. Perhaps a bit too subtle for most (hence the negative responses), but still very clever. I'd rep you if I wasn't out of them for the day!

    Great post! Don't understand the negativity. We've got to have something to do while we wait (perhaps I should be working...lol).

    Because it feels like it might be another 70 years until we get our laptops.
