I once had a Compaq PC. It was the worst, most unstable and overpriced piece of trash I ever owned. In fact, it is sitting less than a yard away from me, gathering dust. It hasn't been used in almost 2 years.
Michael: Jodie, how's my schedule look for today? Jodie: You've got a conference and dinner party at the Japanese Embassy regarding wildlife protection. Michael: Oh, yeah...sorry, but I'll have to cancel that. I'm heading out to save America!
I think Compaq was crap also. But, HP happens to be the only major PC manufacturer that I like. I don't know if the quality of Compaq has changed since HPs aquisition, but I'm glad that they're doing well.
