See, this is a difference. OEMs like HP and Dell sell ignorance, not computers. For someone who is beyond their target client, they are very good deals because we never send them back (except for a full refund), we do not talk to tech support (and if they call us...we pepper them with questions which we can answer but they can't until they learn never to talk to us again) and we never buy warranties. I view OEM systems as a collection of hardware components, not a system. I do not usually use the OS they send (and, if I somehow paid for it, I get a refund on that) either.

However, for a netbook, I have found the Lenovo IdeaPads very enticing.

Didn't buy the warranty; it was supposed to make me feel better for being stuck with their product (that was after hours of nearly crying/screaming on the phone, which apparently the only way to get them to do anything).

My sister just ordered an IdeaPad. It should be arriving any day now.
