Well charge you money to get the exact same thing...




  • Check out this dell laptop here which apparently has the following options:

    • Dell 1397 Wireless-G [Included in Price]
    • ...
    • Dell 1397 Wireless-G [Add $39.99 or $1.00/month1]

    huh??? So basically pay an extra 40 bucks and get a nifty NOTHING EXTRA? Sign me up!

    Also:

    Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English, with Belkin Easy Transfer Cable [Add $29.99]

    Apparently the Belkin EAsy Transfer Cable is an operating system.

    1. WFM
    2. Communist Server no longer has a free version apparently
    3. bstorer is an enemy to all democracy
    4. This paticular install seems to be 3 years old
    5. 22.3 is the sinners number


  •  I find this more troubling:@astonerbum said:

      That's like 66 months at 19.99%.  WTF?  Who finances a laptop for five-and-a-half years? @astonerbum said:

      No.  CS is a dead product, so there will be no upgrades.  Your only hope is that somehow Webkit comes to this outdated version of TinyMCE.

    Community Server doesn't need Webkit support; Webkit needs TDWTF support!

    Hey, I'll consider it a major cause of celebration when BlackBerry finally get their Webkit browser out the door.  Their current one is so unmitigatedly shitfucked that I willing use Opera instead.  OPERA, MORBS!  LOOK WHAT THEY'VE TURNED ME INTO!  sobs openly

    Have you tried this? I'm pretty sure it's Webkit-based, and it's been out for a while. It's better than Opera in my opinion, and certainly runs circles around the default BB browser.

    I have, yeah.  I prefer Opera Mini 5 (except that the latest release has a bug where the screen doesn't resize to fullscreen when the keyboard closes).



  • Re the OP, the first WTF probably isn't. It's usual that when Dell bundle an optional component 'for free' - I'm assuming it is optional, rather than built-in as standard - then they leave the non-free option on the spec-chooser in case you, say, need to get a quote for future use at a time when the bundle is no longer available - for example, because an offer ends today, but you can't get purchase approval until tomorrow.

    I also have a sneaking suspicion that the second WTF is with Microsoft for actually having an OEM edition of Win7 with that as the official title.

    That makes is piss-poor interface communication.

    Did you expect anything else from Dell?

    Dunno. I don't buy from them personally.

    My work computer is pretty good, so I'm happy with the results, however they were accomplished.
