General discussion


Currently deciding between Dell and IBM for an upper mid level system. Heard bad and good about Dell but somehow "feel" IBM always is associated with reliability. Any thoughts are appreciated!

Right now it's hard to say since IMB has sold it's PC business. John

IBM just sold their desktop enterprise to a Chinese company, so you need to take this into consideration before you decide, ie; warranty service, etc.

IBM pcs, are OK

Excluding the other comments about the "Chinese factor", IBM pcs have done very well. Their systems usually are well build and tested far more than it seems others are. They do cost alittle more but not that much more, very reasonable. If you read these forums often, you rarely hear/see that much negative about a "true blue" system problem. Overall, I consider a real IBM pc a value in the long haul. Laptop or desktop, IBM does a good job.

enjoy Happy -----Willy
