General Comments
I bought the Dell Inspiron 5100 with a 4 year next-day fix-or-replace guarantee, with XGA screen, WinXP Home, 60GB 5400rpm HDD, 512MB RAM, CD/DVD-RW, all for £1100. It was delivered in 2 days. It's never given the slightest problem except for a software one which the Dell helpline were still good in helping me solve. I then ordered a second power supply (to leave at work) for a mere £24, a larger battery for £50 (one for my previous Sony was £200!) (which now gives me an average battery life of 5 hrs yet still recharges in 2 hrs) and a port replicator which included a further charger (for my second office!) for £55. These were also delivered in 2 days.

I suppose I could gripe that I had to reduce the icon size on the XP setup they'd provided, but I have to dig that low to find anything other than 10 stars.
