Dell is being sued by New York State, which alleges bad sales practices by the PC manufacturer.

The Inquirer quotes the Wall Street Journal alleging that Dell lures in customers with promises of easy financing then doesn't honour guarantees and service contracts, and makes getting tech support difficult.
Dell has strenuously denied the charges.
The Inq adds that New York State's attorney general wants Dell to fork out damages to people who have been affected by its alleged misdemeanours.
