I agree 100%. My company won't look at a mass deployment of Vista for at least a year. You can still buy a laptop from Dell with XP or XP Pro, but you have to get small business/business class machines and not consumer class machines. That's not a bad thing in my book. I think its a sturdier machine personally.dragnfyr said:My company will not even look at Vista for a year since it takes about that long for the major bugs to be found and worked. Unfortunately for the home user, they are probably stuck using Vista if they buy a new system. The worst of the bugs for home users will show and be resolved within the first 6 to 8 months.
Niki - I had the same issue with my Dell over the last year. I really need it to be portable so I checked Dell's website and discovered there was a more powerful battery available. The one I had was 4800 mAmps and the new one is 7200 mAmps. It lasts 4 hours which is great. You can get the right part number off of Dell and the check ebay. You can usually find a new one for less money than Dell's website.niki said:My only problem with my Dell is that the battery dies waaaay too quickly and has from the get go. It only lasts about 30 minutes. Since I don't hardly take it anywhere and it usually sits at home, I just have it plugged in all the time.
