For the second time in less than one month, Dell’s Taiwan website has overlooked a major pricing error. This time, discounts were being applied to certain CPU configurations on the Latitude E4300. Dell is handing out a 20,000 NT (just over $600) discount to those who ordered the wrongly priced system. The loopy behavior was reportedly discovered yesterday.
Taiwan consumer regulators recently forced the company to honor a pricing mishap, after selling approximately 140,000 19” LCD displays for around $15. In response to the drastic oversights, Dell Taiwan has closed its online store. There is presently no schedule for when the store will reopen.
I think it’s about time the US store has one of these slip-ups – and they should email me when it happens.
