[Reg]Customers give Dell the finger over keyboard screw-up - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Why is this such a big deal to people? Sheesh, is there no forgiveness for anyone? I'm sure Dell will be sending out techs and new keyboards to fix the problem... in the meantime, the customers should just have a good laugh about it, and give Dell a freakin break!

Not trying to defend Dell so much as everyone... it seems that no one has any patience or tolerance for mistakes these days, and, well, mistakes do happen, even by companies as large as Dell (or maybe especially?). People just need to chill out and get on with life. It'll help them live longer anyway.

Yeah. I would think it's from 1990 myself if it wasn't for the Vista-looking Windows key.

These are laptops they're talking about. It will be a pain in the ass for consumers to change the built in keyboard out themselves.

Nope, in fact Dell will likely send the customers kits to do it themselves. All you have to do is pop the bezel off, undo two screws, and the keyboard is off. They'll even send the plastic tool and a phillips screwdriver.
