Story Highlights

  • Dell Inc. unveils four low-cost computer models targeted for China, India
  • Dell wants to tap into potential growth of markets outside U.S.
  • New Dell models created by Shanghai design center
  • China’s computer sales double projected U.S. sales for year 2015

 

Really? I thought making cheap computers was Dell’s specialty. My Insprion 9100’s battery has fried twice now. (And yes, I bought a new power supply, too. Still no dice.) Even with the upgraded 3.2ghz processor, and 2GB of RAM, it makes WoW look well, not so wow. Sluggish would be a compliment. Our friend Gweedo isn’t shy about playing on a Mac Mini, and he recommends turning off all of the shaders for the best performance on it. On a Dell, I recommend turning the whole computer off. That seems to fix everything.

If Dell is actually going to go reduce the current quality of their computers before sending them overseas, I just have one thing to say for my Chinese WoW friends: Good luck gold mining!

Peace out…Borley

    It’s all a ploy to sabotage the gold farmers.

    Haha. I would love to get my hands on one of the ones they’re going to be shipping overseas and gut it to find out if its the same parts in mine.
