Inspirion 3593 makes me Dell Shy

Looking for a new laptop, as I just cannot deal the horrible performance, battery issues, <Profanity removed.TOS73> keyboard layout and function, speakers going in and out like a anxious tom cat, and now, failing power jack of my Dell Inspirion. I use a company supplied Len..TP for 8-12 hours a day in my home office, and it makes my Dell seem like a refurbished infant's toy. I only use it to stream live TV, post on FB and answer email. It has been an agonizing relationship, and I am going to gleefully smash it to pieces once I decide on a new lap top. I swore I would never buy another Dell product due to the 'quality' of this $750 calculator. Support was nice, they tried, but nothing ever improved. Slow as molasses and about 90 minutes of battery life. POS.

But all I am seeing is rave reviews for the XPS. If Dell can convince me that I was expecting too much out of my 3593, or that it unfortunately was just a big POS and they feel bad for not only me, but for everyone who bought one, I would feel a lot better about giving Dell another chance. But, fool me twice, shame on me.

Did I just buy a bad computer in the 3593; or should I just not risk it and buy a Len? I am surprised I am giving Dell this much of a chance, but the reviews for the XPS got me at least this far back. But I can't risk it yet.

After months of dealing with an incredibly slow laptop, DISK almost always maxed at 100% CPU in the 90% while having nothing but a single browser open. I disabled SysMain and all my problems went away. Like MAGIC! I have read post after post of people having the same problem and I found this suggestion buried at the bottom of a Reditt post that went unacknowledged. Disable SysMain!!!! Enjoy a functioning laptop!!!!!

I did think about it at the time. I just wanted something to read the news, visit FB, book tee-times, and stream TV when out in the back yard. The only processing I ask it to do is crunch sports stats in excel and run kinovea, a video annotation tool. I would understand if my issues were isolated to a program like that, but I thought as long as I didn't buy the cheapest LT out there that I could at least have a few browser tabs open. I did disable something last night, that I wish I would have known about a long time ago. I disabled  something called SysMain, and that seems to have made a big difference. My issues with the LT would come and go, and I haven't seemed to have any of those painful experiences since turning it off.

You need to consider exactly what it is that's most important.  Systems like the 3593 sell to the price is paramount market.  It's a cheap, entry-level notebook with features to match its price.

Better industrial design and materials will get your an XPS - for 3-4 times the price.

If you need a business machine, Thinkpads are an option -- so are Latitudes.  For 2-3 or more times the price of the Inspiron you're complaining over.

You don't get a 3-series BMW for the price of a Hyundai Accent.
