WidowPC Gaming Computers - Dell Hostages Freed with New Gaming Laptop
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
AUSTIN, TX, November 20, 2006 - WidowPC, a leader in gaming computer hardware, announced today that they have photographic evidence of actual Dell laptop customer-hostages fleeing the Dell campus in Round Rock, Texas.
"The customer exodus stems from a combination of Dell's exploding laptop fiasco,
WidowPC's price point on their Sting 517D gaming laptop, starting at roughly $100 lower than
Dell's XPS gaming product, culminating in a subliminal feeling of being held hostage by
Dell's robotic phone staff," said Jake M., an actual Dell customer.
The WidowPC Sting 517D gaming laptop uses a safe battery. Dell faced massive recalls after photographs of exploding Dell laptops surfaced on the Internet.
"WidowPC has never used exploding batteries in our laptops," said Joshua McClure, chief executive at WidowPC.
"Our complex statistical customer analysis has shown that customers don't appreciate randomly exploding products especially when offered in combination with a lack of service and

About the Above Photo
Yes, that actually is Dell Building 1 in Round Rock, Texas (the one Michael offices in). We took this picture in broad daylight, in front of about 20 Dell employees. The door actually said "Employee Entrance", but we thought it looked better with "Hostage Exit" and a couple other modifications. See if you can find them all...
We actually attempted to get a couple of the multitude of Dell employees who were standing near the door smoking (around the "no smoking" sign, ironically) to pose for the "running man" shot. They seemed to smell a rat, made some excuses and immediately left in a hurry.
We figured it might have been the WidowPC hat I was wearing or the low volume snickering coming from my fellow conspirators. Either way, we figured that at least one of them was going to look for a security guard and we better take this shot quickly. So, my brother (an actual Dell customer from back in the day when they made good stuff) ended up posing for the photo, we jumped in the WidowPC car as it was pulling away - James Bond style - and escaped with our ill gotten photos.
