I think ordering a DELL computer online is a conspiracy. I've had about 3 DELLs since getting into real estate about 7 years ago. My first two DELLs constantly had problems and caused so much stress. I never thought it worth paying the $350+ for the in-house warranty in case things go wrong, mainly because my step father is good and computer issues, and so is my husband.
When my last computer gave me the blue screen, and I did everything to save it and the harddrive, even freezing the harddrive like the myth says, I decided to order a new one. That was 3 years ago, and I haven't had a single problem. You know why??
I truly believe it's because I spent the $350+ for the in-house warranty for 4 years!! I truly believe that as they build your computer to order, they purposely do something that ensures your computer will crash for some reason or another if you don't spend the extra money for the warranty. When someone buys the warranty, they want to ensure that profit so they make sure the computer has no problems so they never have to send someone out to fix it.
Has anyone else had issues like this?? I trule believe this is a conspiracy. At this point, I don't know if I "wasted" that money for the warranty since I've had no problems, or if I've gotten my money's worth because I've had no issues and therefore haven't had to buy a new computer for a while.
What say you??
