On June 25, 2011 I placed an online order with Dell Canada, which was a Saturday. After I purchased I checked my online statements ; noticed the money was taken off my credit card. So Dell received my payment. Monday morning I heard nothing from Dell ; so I called. Really why am I calling to see if everything is ok? It should have been Dell noticing an order wanting to be processed ; a call from Dell should have been made. I called Dell ; I spoke to a gentleman that told me there was a problem or error with my order ; he would process it now. At this point the order date was now June 27, 2011 ; I was set to receive it July 1, 2011. I was fine with that ; got off the phone a little frustrated that Dell did not care to follow up with my purchase from the 25th.

I should also mention I was purchasing this for someone. When I told the person we would be receiving July 1st she reminded me that it was Canada day ; a holiday so we would not be receiving that day. It was suppose to be a gift for someone ; one of the attractive selling points was the fact that your website stated this computer would be shipped within 48 hours. So I called back to find out if there was anyway to get the computer shipped out a little faster considering I originally ordered it on the 25th ; the issue was not on my part. I was told they would put a notice on the order to see if it could be shipped quicker. Well again I heard nothing back from Dell. Then I was emailed saying there was a delay with my order ; I would not even be receiving it until some time in July. So once more I called Dell to find out how long it would be delayed for? At this point I was speaking with a woman. The woman on the phone told me I would not be getting until July 30, 2011 now. That is a month away. Why should Dell have their money ; I not have a computer for a month. Prices on computers change daily. Why would I want to wait one month for the computer? Also it was a gift. I stated this.

At this point, I had enough problems with Dell. I figured they would have wanted to make the sale. As I mentioned I wanted the Dell system. It was a gift ; I understand problems happen but count all the issues listed above. The unfortunate part for Dell I may only be one person but I own a computer support shop Ontario. We service a fair amount of phones, laptops, desktops ; servers. I am the decision maker in this business ; I am also an onsite technician for several companies in Ontario.

Now Dell Canada has been calling me ; offering me $70 off the system but I should also mention they have since raised their prices. In fact I was not looking to be compensated. I was looking for some help when I initially complained ; sent my original message to Dell. I feel Dell Canada does not care for customers, they may not even care to make the sale? which is really too bad in a rapidly changing industry.

If I were to purchase the system again now it is priced at $899.99 plus tax. I purchased the exact same computer for $799.99 plus tax because it was on special over the weekend. Dell Canada called me ; said if I were to purchase again they would compensate me $70 so really I would still be paying more for the same computer. I mentioned this to them ; they said they could credit me $100 back if I purchased the system again but at this point I am still paying more because the system is $899.99 + tax so I do not understand where Dell thinks they are doing me a favour? Why would they not discount it right away?

Also I would like to mention something I find fishy about how Dell does business. After I cancelled my order, prices on Dell.ca have changed twice for all of the inspiron one computers, even though the ad stated the special of $799.99 (on the computer I selected) was suppose to be good ; valid until July 8th 2011. Dell initially increased the price by around $300 ; then dropped it again to $899.99. This is confusing, dishonest ; very misleading to your customers. If the special on your website is stated as valid until July 8, 2011 then the pricing should not have changed before July 8th 2011, especially not twice. This makes me believe Dell did not want to sell me the computer at the price I purchased it. Especially with all of the problems I stated above.

Glad I cancelled.


  1. You own a computer support shop, and yet you purchased a Dell? lol

  2. Yes I did not want this all in one crap. Receptionist requested one because of lack of room. But I hear you, i was laughing at myself for even wanting to buy that crap. In fact to everyone I highly recommend to not buy an all in one. Look and see how many refurbished units you can buy. Sad considering this is fairly new. You would figure Dell & all manufacturers would get a big laptop PC done right. But stay away from Dell worst customer service / support.

  3. to the first anonymous idiot... I own a Dell, what is wrong with it? Someone who clearly thinks he is know it all. Get a job bum & stop being an idiot!!

  4. Dell has the worst customer service. Think you are calling Canada? Guess again. You are dealing with an east Indian from India.

  5. @ 3rd comment anonymous idiot bum, you would own a D(uh)ell, it's the same or even worse parts in what I build, you are just paying for the name, and oh, the M$ Windbloze 'tax', loser, YOU know nothing, get a real grip on the computer world before you spout at some innocent schlub, and get a life.

  6. @ 3rd comment anonymous idiot bum, you would own a D(uh)ell, it's the same or even worse parts in what I build, you are just paying for the name, and oh, the M$ Windbloze 'tax', loser, YOU know nothing, get a real grip on the computer world before you spout at some innocent schlub, and get a life.

    Wow what a douche bag. You are a poor schlub not an innocent one. Get a life yourself loser. LOL

  7. Dell USA / Dell Canada try to get a hold of someone with a real concern & you dont get an American or Canadian. You get some east indian knob who knows nothing & is told not to help you. I will not buy Dell again.

  8. Dell will never see another dollar of mine. sorry to hear about your problems with them. Check out Asus computers. Much better quality!!!

  9. Thanks for tip. In the market for a pc & noticed their site prices constantly changing. That is a little odd, the specs did not change but the prices increased. Oh well maybe time to build a custom pc. :)

  10. Snooze you lose Dell, LMAO Looks good on them!

  11. Just spoke with some east indian rep who was a total idiot. Dell covers their ass good. They say 48 hour shipping but really they cannot give you an exact date when they will ship. I was going to buy a Dell pc right now but after reading your complaint I took a different approach & asked Dell several questions. Every question I had they could not give me a straight honest answer. Dell has to go this is terrible. Too bad... use to like Dell but they clearly went downhill. Way down down, LOL

    Thanks for tips!!

  12. Dell is losing out. Nice thing about PCs there is selection. None of these big guys learn. We the customers have the power not these clowns. Good luck to you Dell... with all the comments sounds like you will need it. Dell you are as bad as Bell. Bell & Dell have to be the 2 worst companies listed on this site.


  14. I was in the market for a laptop & was considering a Dell. Glad I read this first. No more Dell! lol

  15. Dell Canada is hurting! I have heard many horror stories about Bell & Dell. Why do all the big guys seem to go the way of hell? ;)

  45. Oils, beverages and Paleo sweets should also be used in moderate quantities and also keep in
    mind that Paleo diet food list does not contain in it all processed
    foods made out of dairy products, powdered milk, ice creams, cereal grains and legumes and should be avoided.

    The diet program is generally known as the caveman diet or perhaps the Paleolithic Diet.
    - Vegetables are low in sodium less water retention.
