6/2/2016 12:58:47 AM Windows XP Pro no longer supported, and without PC Matic support...I would have NEVER been able to reload after getting a bad virus that even PC Matic couldnt repair/Quarinteen/Scrub. Fortunately for me, PcMatic customer support(tech) has gotten me to where I could reestablish Active x links to overcome being stuck with a IE that couldnt load PcMatic...or any Microsoft Software Updates(Service packs, IE browser, windows..etc.

1/30/2011 1:55:36 PM I have a Dell XPS 1710 with the NVidia graphics card. I paid a bundle for the computer. The card fails and recovers periodically. Now that it can be replaced under court order if it has failed it is working.

4/13/2011 5:42:42 AM I'm very disappointed since I had it specially built to be able to run Adobe CS4 Premium Design Suite and Lightroom 2 for my photography and back in March of 2007 it cost me $3,500.00 for Dell to build the laptop that could take the quantitiy of work and software I needed. I explained it all to them about what I do, but it was awful...Photoshop ran so slowly and since I take photos in RAW format the hard drive filled up so fast that I had to remove both of the Adobe photo editing/graphic design software programs, and transfer all the photos to a desktop and an external hard drive then delete them all just to be able to get this to run at a fairly decent speed. I barely used it at all except for two business trips and now I watch movies on DVD with it in my bedroom...I started to type in Microsoft Word and two of the keys fell off, the J key and the Caps Lock key!!!! I will NEVER EVER buy another DELL product ever again....and of course the keys broke off right after my warranty expired of course of course! They want way to much for me to have it fixed...but at the price I paid for it 4 years ago, It was a total RIP OFF because now all I can use it for is to watch DVD's it wont connect to the internet on my wireless home network, I have to use a Verizon Wireless wireless USB drive and pay a lot every month for Verizon's service when I have Comcast wireless in every room in my house. So YES I am very dissatisfied with the quality of the machine for the price I paid and the utter LACK of customer service and technical assistance. They wanted me to pay $79.99 just to talk to technical support on the phone to explain what was going on with the constant error messages and freakish stuff it is doing. That's why I bought the CA Pc Tune-Up 2.0 from Comp USA to try and fix it myself and use a wireless keyboard and usb to type with instead of the actual laptop broken keyboard. As I stated, I'm a grown woman who takes very good care of my belongings...no little children or teen-agers around to mess with it...so it should have lasted far longer than it did.
