    I bought the m4700 5 months ago and it was broken on delivery. They sent a tech guy out who replaced the screen, hard drive, video card and something else. 3 service calls the first week I had the new computer.
    The computer shut down all the time and gave me copious blue screens. After hours on the computer with the remote repair they gave up finally. After 3.5 months of nothing but problems. Then 3 weeks ago they sent me a brand new m4800. After two weeks it totally broke. It is unfixable. The tech guy replaced the motherboard, video card, power source twice in a week and it is unfix-able. I asked for a refund. They refuse. I have documented all the phone calls and hours and I have spent over 30 hours and been hung up on over 25 times in 5 months. Or "disconnected" They bounce you from India, to the wrong dept, to this and that and no one takes responsibility for your case. It is so bad.
    Nightmare, total total nightmare. I am in the small-medium business sector so that is better service than the consumer, so it it is this bad for me, if you buy not as a business I cannot imagine how bad it would be.
    I rely on these kind of reviews to help me avoid this kind of trouble. If I had read this review, I would of never bought a Dell.
    With both the m4700 and m4800 if you go online and google "broken, blue screen of death", not working and go to the Dell Support Community you will find 100's of stories like mine. Dell has a problem wtih these machines. One of the CS reps even said to me today, our software is crap. Save yourself the heartache and do not buy a Dell.
