Why Buy from Dell?

I bought a Dell notebook computer mainly because I was able to get the configuration I wanted at a price that was within my budget. No other computer company allowed me to do this. Dell's web site was well designed and allowed me to easily configure my notebook from various base configuration models. I would have ordered on-line, but at that time Dell was doing maintenance on their server, so I ordered via phone. Ordering by phone was a little more complicated that ordering via the Internet, but I finally got my order placed. Once placed, I used Dell's on-line tracking web site. This site informed me what stage of the manufacturing process my computer was in. The computer arrived at my door exactly seven days after I placed my order.

If you plan on purchasing a Dell computer, I recommend you contact:

Tell him you know Mike and Derrick from Wisconsin, and he'll treat you right!

On-line Notebook Retailers

Nice computers at competitive prices. The three-year warranty on notebooks sold is the best in the industry.
The notebook computers offered at Micron are extremely powerful, but the prices are too high.
Gateway's prices are very affordable, but I couldn't get the right combination of screen size and processor speed that I wanted. Either they configured the screen size too small or the processor speed too fast.
This is where I purchased my network card. Once again, I highly recommend this online retailer. NECX has very fast delivery and very low prices. I received my packages within 3 days of my order from them. They had a large selection of products and comprehensive reviews about all of them.
