comments on buying a PC
i’m in the process of buying another dell for the office and get a call from one of the companies the PC magazine companies. he asks what the “standard” machines and costs are (laptop Dell D630) with a specific hard drive, memory and processor.
he states that they have competitive dell pricing and can usually do really well – he’ll get me a quote later in the day. when i finally get a quote it is for a sony with a smaller drive and in general not lining up with the machine i told him about.
personally, when trying to support close to 100 machine/users all by myself, i do not want to support 3 different companies (IBM, Dell and Sony) and have machines with varying ages etc. it is already driving me nuts!
