No, DAAMMIT is a CPU vendor
Dell is OK if you don't need a serious computer .. or server for that matter.
HP makes decent stuff, but since they assimilated Compaq (better known as Crap Pack) things have gone a bit down hill.
Can anyone come up with a reason why 90% of any computer from Dell (server laptop, whatever) does NOT power up most external USB drives??
Anything that stars getting close to the maximum 500ma current draw of a USB 2.0 port simply does not work on almost every Dell I've ever tried them on.
Acer for me, and make that with XP, NOT Vista ... better yet can it be "factory pre-downgraded" to Debian Etch x86 please?
