I would have bought American if Dell hadn't made it inconvenient for small corporate buyers online. I ended up with Acer PCs recently from Courts at Ang Mo Kio because it was available. The few Dell machines at the store weren't the ones I wanted. Ditto for HP. I dislike Acers but these are low end office machines that I needed, any brand would do. They are indistinguishable.

The old Windows Vista Core 2 Duo machine, an old Dell Vostro 200, has finally died after all these years. I had put good RAM into the machine and extended its life. I had also put a new HDD in recently. It had rendered good service for many years, a decade of hard use. I guess that was it. Now, I will strip the few usable parts of that thing.
