    Holy crap... I'm glad now that I build my own computer. I don't like the extra software places like Dell puts on your computer, and now that I know they put in extra hardware... Yea scary crap...

    Nothing in my Dell D505. I asked my dad (who works for Dell), and he had never heard of anything like this.

    Yes I have also never heard anything like this. I bet this is all not true..if Dell did this they could get caught for this and I bet me did not buy it from them. I think he bought it from someone that had it and sold it to him..it could have been used and all and that person might have put it in there..... Dell is a trustworthy company also I do not have a dell but I heard they are all good!

    Sweet!!! I didn't know Dell was above the law!

    If I become a multi-national mega-corporation can I invade my customer's privacy too!?!?

    Rated #1 for PRE-MADE COMPUTERS perhaps. But nothing beats custom-building your own computer in your own house. You know what you want, you know what you're getting, you know everything in there, and you also know that there aren't extra un-wanted parts in your custom, glowing, quiet, glass, sleek tower.

    I'don't like Dell Computers, It's a fine company for people who know not much about pc's.
    Also i like AMD Processors.... Not Intel ;'(

    This was a joke article...

    The link I went too (not the one posted here) was on a website with a .de TLD. This implies it wasa german website.

    Why would a german contact American DHS?

    Secondly the folder the the article was in, indeed even the page itself was labelled LOL

    Therefore it is a joke. While I have no doubt that hardwired keyloggers may exsist on some peoples dell computers... they were not put there by Dell.
