Dell accidentally sells 140,000 monitors for $15 eachLooks like Dell has made a rather costly mistake in Taiwan. Apparently a promotional deal went online with the wrong price of $15 for some monitors. Within eight hours, 26000 customers had ordered 140000 monitors. Ouch!

The Taiwanese regulators are making Dell fulfill the order. It’s not the customer’s fault after all. The original price of the monitors was supposed to be about $150. After Dell changed the price, 471 complaints were filed and Dell will have to use the $15 price for clients who have ordered those monitors. Dell will try to apply a deep discount to some others.

Dell working on an Android based iPod Touch competitorWith Microsoft nearly ready to unleash the Zune HD on the masses, now Dell is working on a device to compete with the iPod Touch, according to reports. The device will play music and videos just like the iPod Touch, but will be based on the Google Android mobile OS and also function as a MID.

In size it will likely be slightly larger than the Touch. The device needs to compete with not only the Touch, but also with the Zune HD. It will be interesting to see what features end up in the device and whether it ends up being a true competitor or falls short.

Dell download store offers Microsoft software

delldownloadWhen it comes to buying software I typically prefer to have CDs or DVDs that I can keep up with rather than a digital file that I can lose or erase accidentally. Still, I can see the appeal of having all the software you use in digital files so you don’t need to keep up with discs.

The Dell download store announced today that it has added the ability to download Microsoft software like Word, Excel, and Outlook. The advantage of getting the software as a digital download is that you can save a bit of money.

dellstudio14-sbThere was once a time when buying a new notebook regardless of the brand meant that you were getting the same basic looking machine. Some notebooks were plain beige then along came the snazzy black machines. Dell was among the first notebook makers to offer consumers real color options and is still the leader in that area.

Dell announced a new laptop yesterday called the Studio 14z that packs a nice feature set into a colorful and portable package. The machine has a low starting price of $649 and comes in Black Chain Link, Midnight Blue, Spring Green, Plum Purple, Ruby Red, and Promise Pink colors. The notebook will be available internationally, but the pink color is for the U.S. only. Dell will donate $5 for each pink notebook purchased to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.

Dell unveils 10.1-inch Latitude 2100 netbook for K-12 students

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on May 19th, 2009

delllatitude2100-sbA friend of mine was asking me the other day what notebook they should buy for their 7-year-old son who wants his first computer. I told them to get a netbook because they are cheap and sized well for small hands. The only problem with a netbook is that the small stature can lead to easier breakage.

Dell has announced a new ruggedized netbook called the Latitude 2100 that is aimed at use in schools for students in K-12. The machine has a rubberized design that helps it withstand the rigors of living with kids and makes the exterior of the machine grippier.
