Submission + - Dell manufacturing defect on the m5030 laptop is a ticking timebomb (dell.com)

darkharlequin writes: After carefully considering all of my options last April, I purchased a Dell computer from Best Buy to complete my taxes. It seemed like a good enough deal, and it was a Dell, which we use quite frequently at my job(Uncle Sam). Turns out, thought, the machine was a ticking time bomb, and that time bomb was set to go off about 1 year after the laptop was manufactured--which conveniently coincides with the end of the manufacturer's warranty. This gives me pause as to the manufacturing processes of Dell, which I have come to expect to be outstanding.
