Default What gives with the new Vostro mini? - 04-21-2009, 09:33 AM

I have a Dell preferred account. I tried to buy the new Vostro mini which is $199. But I keep getting an error message that I cannot use my preferred account only a Dell business account. Whats he difference. Money is money. The Vostro mini is listed in the business section. Not even home office. ???

Dell loves to play games.

That's why they have a rapidly changing series of deals and coupon codes. That's why they divide their site into many different sections like home, small business, etc. That's why they sell the same computer under different names. The Vostro A90 is just the "business" version of the Mini 9. They're identical, but Dell keeps them in completely separate sections on their site. And as you found out, they place artificial barriers between the two.

Their love of games is also why they have frequent price mistakes. They confuse themselves sometimes.


Mini 9 | Intel 5100 Wifi | Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook
Mini 1012 | SSD | Intel 6200 Wifi | Ubuntu 11.10 64bit
