A fairly reliable system contrary to public belief. Most people have problems with Dells and ALL OTHER computers as HP, Compaq , ect. because they need to learn how to properly operate, maintain and secure thier computers.
Dell computers use the Intel boards and chips that prove to be cheap yet reliable. My Dell computer has been running 5 years strait, i never turn it off execpt for an occasional reboot or the power goes out and nothing on my Dell has failed yet.
It is true that the Intel boards that they use lack the ability to upgrade somewhat. They do not supply an AGP slot for vid cards and their cases do not supply a spare slot for a 2nd Hard Drive.
When ordering you should know what you need or your sure to get ripped, not by Dell, but by yourself.
Celeron chips are cripled Pentium chips and are for office apps, not gamming like the Pentium series, know how much memmory your apps need, know how much ram your video card needs to support and how much Hard Drive space you need. Knowing these basis is a good start in selecting a system.
Also be carefull, it is true that Dell Tech support is not excellet or anywhere close to adequate, although this could be because of rules implemented on the tech support team by the company rather then the support group themselves. But if you know how to operate and troubleshoot you do not need tech support.
