    I was browsing thru the Dell website, looking at their new home PC's. I
    went thru the customize selection, picking and choosing my way thru the
    options. Actually, I have no intension of buying a new computer. I was
    just curious to see what is currently available from Dell and how much they

    One thing I didn't see was the option to include an operating system CD
    (or DVD) so that you can format the hard drive. Plus a CD (or DVD) that
    contains all the drivers. Does Dell still make that available when you buy
    a new PC? That is very important to me.

    When I get a new computer, one of the first things I do is format the
    hard drive to remove all the 'crapware.' Doing this really improves the
    performance of your machine. My 15 month old E510 had a ton of junk
    preinstalled that slowed down the computer considerably, as well as
    generating error messages and system crashes.

    They're standard now. Clearly the $10 fee resulted in way too many
    support requested from people that didn't buy them.

    Another case of "going broke saving money."

    And you get a drivers CD as well.
