    I just read in the news yesterday that dell has spent 338million dollars last fiscal year repairing faulty components! (thats no small drop in the bucket!)

    They obviously didn't spend enough though on their batteries.

    Maybe they should try putting some more into creating their computers and using more quality parts the first time so that they don't have to spend so much on repairs.

    Dell claims its the Sony bateries that are failing, mostly cuz the user bangs it around too much loosening some wires. (They use Sony bateries). I dont think dell makes any components... probably just buy the cheapest parts they can find and slap it together...

    A lot of manufactures don't make their or use their own components. My Compaq laptop has a Fujitsu hard drive and some Fujitsus use Toshiba hard drives sometimes.

    If Dell are saying that, then it is a very poor excuse and should be ashamed of themselves for announcing anything untowards.

    Todays laptops have to take a moderation of misuse (okay we're not talking Panasonic Toughbook treatment) and to say this and blame the user is like a school playground brawl...

    That is very true.. although in the case of the T4210 the UK spec uses the Seagate ST96812AS SATA drives.

    anyone actually called up the manufacturers and asked whether or not the coreduos are actually soldered on or not? i heard someone say that tosh sodiers them, but nothing on fujitsu? I might upgrade my Tablet after the warantee runs out instead of buying a new tablet to save money, so it becomes a factor

    Fujitsu uses a screw to hold in their CPUs...
