Hello everyone, I'm not sure if this is the right section of the forums but I was wondering if anyone bought a desktop computer at Costco. If you guys did buy one, how is the return policy and warranty? How is the manufacturer quality? I've heard from some people that Costco have cheaper computers but I am kinda iffy about buying it from them versus buying from the manufacturer (Dell). Here is the computer I want to buy: "My link" Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks!

90 day return policy for computers, 2 year MFG warranty. The manufacturer quality is going to be the same across the board it does't matter where you buy it from. Dell desktops in my experience have performed well for the customer, different story about laptops. Costco sells them cheaper that doesn't mean the computer itself is built cheaper, you should be fine $799.99 for that whole package isn't bad at all.
