The little things… the little things matter to me.

Here you have a Dell laptop that was given out by our helpdesk as a loaner to my co-worker. “Deskside support” as they’re called, even though they aren’t beside your desk — but whatever.

Talke a look at the power connector.

The cattywampus angle of the power connector would be enough for me to want to throw the laptop out the window. It just strikes me as some design engineer got lazy with the layout of the board… or perhaps the physical design engineer couldn’t figure out where to but the barrel connector for the power.

I don’t like it one bit.
