Hardware, Embedded Systems "Dell, the personal-computer maker that lost almost a third of its value last year, is in buyout talks with private-equity firms, two people with knowledge of the matter said. The shares surged." So yeah, like I said - no wonder Microsoft has entered the hardware business. The PC OEM era is over.

Bought last year 3 laptops, Dell Vostro 3555 with AMD APU A8-3500M with integrated GPU Radeon HD 6620G. This beast have everything you can expect : USB 3, BlueTooth, Wifi-N, Ethernet Gigabit, eSata, HDMI, VGA, SDHC, ExpressCard 34mm, antiglare screen, ...

The problem is the hardware support of parts. One year after, it's hardly even possible to get them a back-lit keyboard that was not available at time of purchase. And when they finally found some, it's out of guarantee so with higher price, and they even fail to make a correct invoice (I asked for 2, they make the first with 1, the second with 3)

And since then, they ditched away the AMD APUs altogether. So no more Dell hardware for me, thanks. Otherwise they are very good machines, as well conceived than Apple's hardware, very neat engineering. Perhaps outsourced to Foxxcon as well ?
