Default Dell Mini 9 Now Available from Dell Outlet - 10-22-2008, 10:40 PM

Dell Mini 9s are now available in the hundreds from Dell Outlet, Dells store of refurbished products.

The Mini 910 is available in a wide range of specifications, with guaranteed instant dispatches (as they already have the product) and a few bucks off the original price too.

Check out Dell Outlet (US), and set the settings to "Laptop" and "Inspiron 910" to see the list available and grab yourself a bargain!

Wow, Dell. Talk about a slap in the face. I ordered a Mini 47 days ago and it's not supposed to ship for another 19 days (for a total of 66 days after ordering), but here they are all over the outlet store.

I had planned on cancelling my order and getting an Aspire One, but it turns out the Aspire One doesn't have Bluetooth, so now I'm just stuck waiting for a Mini. Still waiting....

Here: http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSale ... 0910&s=dfh

Only 81 available stateside.

Whats nuts is that they are previously ordered NEW. So someone ordered, then cancelled, but that system couldn't go to someone who had a pending order??

They actually do this custom, in line bs? What a waste of space!

So you could place an order, cancel it, then buy the same machine from the Outlet, cheaper?

I ordered one last night from Dell Outlet, with BT, 1 GB ram, 16 GB SSD, black...no camera.

It says a ship date of 11/6/08, so the shipping isn't quite as fast as I'd hope it would be...

I may change my forum name from Jazz1 to "Constant Whiner". Having read the ship date on the outlet purchase I guess I will just stay the course with my original delayed order as it is only a few days off. I don't want to go through the refund credit hassle that would have to occur given Dell's customer service record. Of course at least the outlet units actually exist. My pre-order is probably half built on some conveyor belt somewhere in Asia. My daughter tells me these constant Dell delays and poor customer service is a sign from God that I should not stray from Apple :lol:
