Strictly for your amusement, guys.
Sunday morning, I ordered a DELL Precision 3640 Tower from B&H in New York (the best customer service over the years so I am giving them a plug). The computer arrived at my doors yesterday morning.
Win 10 installed in 12 min. I was elated. After installing the Photoshop, I decided to take a break and check the news on the web. Big mistake. As I was typing the web address, the pointer stopped moving. Ctr-Alt-Del, i.e. the keyboard, was not working either. I shut down the machine, then turned it on. The MS Edge (browser) icon vanished from the toolbar on the bottom of the screen.
I found the shortcut to the program elsewhere, clicked, the browser appeared on screen - and everything froze.
Shut down the machine again. ON again, OFF again, etc., cannot get to the PIN screen. OFF again, ON again, type PIN, dots rotate for a second, then - freeze. Evening wasted.
This morning turned ON, logged in, got a message about a missing Internet connection (wrong). While looking for the screen to troubleshoot this issue, the computer froze.
So, I called the store to return the computer, received a shipping label from them in an email, dropped the box at FedEx.
(Tech support at B&H suggested the OS install got corrupted somehow but agreed it's not a good sign on day one).
Otherwise, life is great.
