Who wants to come to a bonfire?

I'm burning my PC. I've had it with the piece of shit! This is my third Dell laptop. The first two lasted about 5 years each. I consider that respectable considering all the use and abuse. This spring our last one died suddenly but not totally unexpected after it was resuscitated the year prior. I knew its days were numbered and it had served us well. We went last minute and picked up another Dell and it's been one headache after another! It deletes whatever the hell it wants, the keyboard types when it wants. It has been in to the computer techs and no virus or worm can be found. Dell replaced the keyboard; it still types when it wants. Dell service can't find a problem and they will not admit this thing is a dud. I got into an argument with some guy in India because I wouldn't pay them extra to re-install my operating system. I did it myself later and it didn't work anyway. So I've been questioning if this is a Windows 7 problem or Dell problem. After talking to people, I've found several others with the same problem with their Dell computers.  It's so upsetting to be reading my email and watch it just go down the line deleting. I can't do anything with photos because it tries to delete them and then freezes. This thing is unreliable; it cannot be trusted

I've been coveting a Mac for over a year now. I go to Best Buy and the Apple Store to look at them with longing and stroke their smooth lines. I've been surfing the website and building my own. Tonight I took the plunge and ordered my iMac. It will be here next week and hopefully my computer frustrations will end. Tonight I'm going to fantasize about the many ways I could destroy this computer even though I know A won't really let me. A girl can dream, right?
