I wonder if these are Pentium 4 based units.

Dell isn't the only one with laptops that needed more maintenance to keep from overheating than your budget roadster. You can't imagine how many laptops I've dusted out over the past few years.

Point? Many owners thought the units were maintenance free bricks.

Yup.. I'll buy a new car tommorow, Never change the oil, Never check fluids, Never check tire pressure then Complain to the builder.. (When it dies Or, Runs out of gas)... Manufacturers need to put "CiDiot" Labels on eveything to keep from being drawn to future Litigation it would seem.. CiDiot is a term that I invented to explain Why folks from Chigago, L.A. , or similar, Come to the Beautiful Northern Michigan area and proceed to drive like asswipes.. City-ut.. Have fun

Hope you dont mind the humor...
