" It seems the Dell engineers take special pride in presenting an unfriendly user design."
It's noy just Dell.
Most "brand name" computer manufacturers don't build computers with upgrading in mind.
They don't want people to be able to easily extend the usefullness of a computer.
They want a user to buy a new computer.
They count on computers becoming "obsolete" pretty quick [couple of years tops] so people will "upgrade" by buying a new computer.
