Actually, any computer from HP, Compaq, Dell, etc is ALWAYS a rip off. Always much cheaper to build the computer from parts YOURSELF. you will be paying for the support, assembly and brandname. You can equally bash them all on their service and systems.Originally Posted by riuster
Umm, you should not be charged with Dell for shipping. I know at least as a business customer you are not. I work with our company's IS with over 2,500 Dell desktops and laptops, and then over 25 tablet PCs and 125 HP/Compaq equipment, and do plenty of part exchanges. Never paid for any shipping ever for part exchanges.
