I tried to buy a laptop on two occasions from Dell.The first time ,when it did not arrive ,I rang them and they had no trace of any order.The second time I tried to order it verbally(as opposed to online),and when I quoted diectly from a national paper all the required numbers and specifications(without a single deviation from the page),the price was £210 more than advertised.After some consultation,the Indian lady spoke to her boss,who agreed to let me have it at the advertised price.As the conversation had lasted best part of half an hour,I declined his offer,as I figure if it took this much trouble to buy something from them,how long would it take if somehing went wrong.I went and bought a new base unit locally in the end.
