New computers from Dell don't come with adware. If a computer comes with a couple programs you don't like, just uninstall them or don't use them. They don't affect performance. You don't pay for them, so you don't get a discount if they aren't installed. THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM.
The little games don't take up much hard drive space. They don't affect performance. You don't pay for them, so you don't get a discount if they aren't installed. Again, THIS IS NOT A PROBLEM.
Specifically, what problems did you encounter with the E1705? What didn't work so well? What couldn't you do?
Well, some of you might remember me, I asked too many questions awhile back, or too many difficult questions, or really I am not quite sure why the forum security started getting on my back.
I do still have the job as a Wellness Coach/Fitness Coach for the Fortune 250 company but the laptop I decide on had to be sent back because it could not perform on a regular basis. Hope that does not hit too close to "home" for some of the regular patrol experts.
For the job I had decided on a Dell Insp E1705. As far as the make up and the specifics, I am too tired to get into that but I got mostly the "top" of everything until it started getting to the extra batteries, printers, etc. I spent about $2,500.
Dell took it back and I am in limbo now as far as what I am able to do.
So,, I am open for suggestions. I am a wellness coach/fitness coach that does all the coaching over the INTERNET on what is called a web platform. There when I am my client meet for our scheduled appointment, we get the cameras going, the microphone (I had a bluetooth headset) and start doing what I do the best. hehe
I am hoping to get a total refund by Dell but who knows. Th is a lot of money they will lose but they should have made a better quality machine. I t tried to get Dell to remove all software, Ad ware, games, anything that is not essential to Vista
Small Business, Office 2007, etc. that obviously was not done since the conflicts started to happen before I even loaded my fitness and nutrition software.
I have looked at the FE, FV series from Sony Vaio, the one with the carbon, bullet proof shell, MacBook Pro, Dell CPS and another Dell.
Any help, guidance, in regards to a laptop that will rerely be needed to be taken out of the AC socket (rarely, but it will happen), that is fast, can handle a nutrition program figuring out what the total calories, fat grams, CHO grams, protein, sugars, fiber, while the coaching session is still going on and I am taking notes so they can immediately be posted on this clients home page on this web platform.
I need to find a company that can make a computer without all the ad ware, extra games, programs that did not order. if that is not possible any recommendations on good solid machines that I can at least check out. I am not sure if now is a good or bad time to be buying a laptop but the work is backing up and since I am a new at the job, an absent coach is not very ideal for this huge company who offers this service to their execs for "free."
Thanks so much!
