    I was just looking for a 15.6 inch laptop. Dell was overpriced and their web site had a number of problems, so I had to initiate 4 different chat sessions to get simple questions answered. Then their PayPal payment option would not work and they could offer no assistance on why. Two days later it was still not working and still they could not say why. Guess what? I found a great deal on a Lenovo and Dell lost the sale. Michael Dell has a lot of work to do to get that company back in shape.

    Dell company has made a very decision to by selling the Dell company to the founder. He is the founder so why shouldn't he get to keep it? Makes sense to me.

    I think it is a bad idea, because I think the founder is just trying to get more money.
