A few years ago I was standing on a train station and 2 men in front of me were discussing the rollout of new machines in their individual companies. One guy asked the other if they were going to use the latest Dell equipment and the reply was astonishing -
" No , Dell will not let us have the latest equipment. They said they don't roll it out to corporates until it has been tested through the general public and all the faults fixed. They don't want to be sued etc by corporates for supplying sub-standard or faulty equipment!"
Being an IT manager thay really pricked up my ears - and put me off Dell equipment for business and personal use for a long time.
