Despite my dislike for all things outsourced, my first experience with DELL's call center in India was a largely positive one.So this week, during a particularly intense session of software testing, the 500GB hard drive on my DELL Precision 530 decided to kick the bucket.
A while back, I had a rather unpleasant experience with coffee leaping out of a mug and attacking the keyboard of a new Dell computer (see the string of posts beginning with The old coffee-in-the-keyboard trick).Darby Green, an entrepreneur in New Zealand, discovered the series of posts describing my soggy experiences and sent me a note suggesting a solution.
Our central office needs a new server. Configuration is hardly rocket science: it's a mission critical application, DNS, and DHCP server, as well as a domain controller for the office.
In June, I recounted my out-of-the-box experience with a new Dell PC running Windows Vista. In July, I took the plunge and moved this system out of the office and into the living room. With a few extra bits of hardware, everything is working together perfectly. If you've considered doing the same thing, read my advice and check out the accompanying image gallery.
I’m documenting my experience with a new Dell C521 running Windows Vista. After an initial glitch that requires an onsite service call from Dell, I'm back in business. Today's goal is to stress-test the machine using a selection of real-world applications and see how it performs under fire. How much can a $500 PC handle before it falters? The answer even surprised me.
I’m documenting my experience with a new Dell C521 that arrived last week. Day 1 was uneventful, as I unpacked the pieces, backed up the original hard drive and replaced it with a new larger drive, and installed a few updates.

The growth rate for PC shipments in China dropped to 13 percent in the third quarter, far slower than earlier rates, according to a preliminary report from researcher IDC. In the first quarter of 2001, for instance, PC shipments in China grew by 49 percent compared with the same period a year earlier. China accounts for roughly 43 percent of PC shipments to Asia, so the slowdown in growth could be ominous. "China has thus far been the poster child for the PC market, and a moderation in growth does not bode well for the industry," Ashok Kumar, an analyst with Piper Jaffray, wrote about IDC's findings. As in the United States, Dell Computer was the only large multinational PC maker to experience growth in China. Compaq, Samsung and IBM all saw sales shrink in the third quarter in China. Although Dell grew faster than China's Legend computer, Legend remained firmly in the No. 1 spot with 660,000 units.
