Just over a week later, the overpriced system is back online and Dell is backpedaling. The company now says it deliberately restricted sales to control demand and prevent excessive ship times. Dell says it never planned to discontinue the Adamo XPS, and sales have been strong both online and in stores. Apparently, misinformed sales reps are to blame for incorrectly spreading word that the system was near the end of its lifecycle.
The Adamo XPS is once again available through Dell's online store, kicking off with the same specifications and steep $1,998 starting price.
