Can anybody advise me please, I am about to place an order for a new Dell p.c. I have asked for a dvd rewriter and a cd rewriter, the salesman has suggested that a better way to go would be to have a dvd rom drive and a dvd rewriter and not have a cd drive at all are there any drawbacks to doing it this way i.e. speed incompatability etc,My knowledge of rewriter drives is limited and I probably will not be doing a great deal of burning at the moment.I just want to future proof the p.c. as much as I can. Many Thanks
I'm, sorry, but Shinda, if Kingfisher followed that advice, then he/she would probably not buy anything from any company active in the UK market.
I ordered a Dell inspiron (a while ago), got it within 9 days of the machine going into production, and it was a non-standard config (needed a finnish/swedish keyboard).
If ordering from dell, I strongly reccommend ordering over the phone, because then you have a commission driven salesperson who wants that computer to get to you even more than you do (they don't earn any commission until the machine leaves the factory).
Also, get the salesperson's direct dial phone number, and email address.
Be careful buying from Dell, especially if includes a flat panel monitor. If, like me, you get one with dead pixels (bright green spots) they will quote industry standards and not refund or replace. You will end up with a horrible pc. I would avoid them. Only bought mine this Monday and having huge problems with their customer service. Also check the configuration and dont expect it to arrive correct despite checking it through with them. I did not receive the correct spec.
