Re: [Rant] Dell is a pain in the ass

The drivers on the CD will most likely be outdated quite fast, if they are not already outdated.

Every time I do a clean Windows install, I always make sure to download the latest drivers before.

Probably, but at least there will be functional drivers which were missing. Now I can connect to the internet to get the latest drivers, something I could not do after re-installing Windows without a load of unwanted crapware.
