Who makes better PCs,HP or Dell or Acer or lenovo:
1) Quality In Components(like motherboard,read about Dell using Cheap components from 1992 to 2003 wikipedia)?
2) Cheaper is Better(Most Important) (Dell is usually cheaper,isn't it?)
3) Long Lasting ability
But the cost varies significantly,I'm an India
Here Dell 580s is very cheap(a seleced model with i3 and nVideo 512 MB Graphic card PC is Rs.32500,But The Same config in HP and lenovo cost Rs.38000 and Rs.37500)
How does Dell manage to sell at lower costs,do they lower quality components.
Dell has faced many problems regarding quality(Intentionally done to make consumers buy spare parts which are costly and not common-read this in Wikipedia)
Dell is cheaper because they bought a ton of part from other manufacturer more than Sony, HP or Lenovo , or Toshiba . The more you bought, the cheaper part will be. Dell market is larger than other company . Example: Dell desktop almost everywhere in most companies. My schools just replace 300 Dell desktop(Q6600 processors were on them) with brand new Dell PC (CoreI5). Dell desktop will become cheaper if most companies order from them. Atm most companies use Dell, so Dell pc will become cheaper than other. Why they can sell cheaper? let break down::::
Dell bought CoreI5 x1000 per month (at price 150$ each)
HP bought CoreI5 x500 per month (at price 160$ each)
Lenovo Core I5 x300 per month ( at price 170$ each)
See what i mean? all parts will become cheaper if they bought alot from other companies. RAM, CPU, PSU, and other.
Service assembly fee. Foxcomm will charge dell less than other if Dell order or give them project to build something more than other.
At the end , Dell , HP, and Lenovo qualities are almost the same. However , there still some parts such as keyboard, LCD screen are different but overall component such as RAM, Batteries , Processor, Graphic card will be same quality.
I think Dell did order a lot of Nvidia gpu(intergrate) to put on their desktop and labtop, so gpu part for Dell pc will be less than other company. Same thing as other part.
If you want to find out more, you might take business or marketing degree. It is relate to market stuffs.
Add: Laptop design is also add in the cost. Depend how long they design the labtop case and internal design. Such as weight , thickness ect.
Ok,Dell(including other brands) only assemble PCs,But do you know from where does Dell buy monitors,I already have a Dell PC,its really good.But Dell has got caught into many controversies,have other brands like HP,Acer or Lenovo ever got into problems?
