This is 100% HP fault, not Microsoft.
So, it is Dell's fault since they chose to use shoddy equipment?
Yes. As a company, I would start looking for a new manufacturing company, and slowly perform a transition.
Interesting info, I lost a pad under my base of mmy laptop, Dell came over and replaced the base and palm rest of my laptop just for that pad (yea, pretty cool). The old parts looked a tad different than the new parts. I noticed as the technician was at work, that the new base and palm rest is made from a different manufacture, and that the old one was made by Foxconn.
When it was done, I noticed that the pads are way more sturdy attacked (melted attached to the base) than the old one. Same for the palm rest, the touchpad top texture feels wwaaaay better and smoother to the finger (finger slides easier) compared to the old Foxcoon model.
I guess Dell is slowly changing manufacturing company, or at least for for some parts on some models. I have the Dell Latitude E6400.
I wouldn't travel within one light year of products from:-
Antec PSUs (Modular. My. Arse.)
Edimax (should move into the door-stop business)
Acer (plus their demon spawn Gateway, Packard Bell and e Machines)
I'd snuggle up in front of the fire with:-
Dell (for monitors only)
