A Dell worth getting

Normally, I’d never ever buy a fully built PC for myself (or wife) from anybody – HP, Acer, Apple, Dell, you know. This is probably the second PC I can consider getting other than this HP TouchSmart model that looks quite snazzy. The XPS One doesn’t count because it’s not available in Malaysia yet. What’s not to like? Price is one thing but why can’t Dell Malaysia remove all the useless stuff (monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse) because I’ve got better and sell just the unit? Secondly, it maxes out at 4Gb RAM. Come on, this is 2008, we need 6Gb and 8Gb! Anyways, pricewise, it gets pretty high (I spec’ed mine up to RM4,968 with a 2.5Ghz CPU) so again, I have to pass on it. However, it looks like Dell’s waking up a bit and PC manufacturers are begin to make snazzier boxes. The new Latitude E-Series looks good 🙂
