  1. Hmm. Interesting. Thank you for this article.

    So, then, my now realizing that Dell’s knowing this was coming helps to explain why machines in other product lines with similar specs have recently started disappearing. The Inspiron 15R-SE and 17R-SE models, with 16GB of RAM, i7 quad-core processors, either nVidia or Radeon 1080p graphics cards with lots-o’-RAM on ’em, a second internal hard drive bay (into which the SMART guy would install a fan rather than another hard drive… but, hey… that’s just me), the numeric keypad even on the 15-inch model, and a whole host of other way-cool features…

    …are gone, starting right after Christmas. The only way to get them, now, it seems, is to stumble onto one in the Dell Outlet store’s either refurb or scratch-and-dent departments; and when they show-up there, they last for only minutes.

    So, then, yes… interesting… indeed.

    We, in the US, who search the DELL site for the M2800 end-up getting this “coming soon” page…

    …which you, in India or wherever may or may not be able to actually see if DELL does some kind of regional (based on IP address) redirection or something. Of course, as time goes by, and the M2800 becomes available to those in the US, that “coming soon” link that I just posted will go bad; but that, for the moment (as of 12 March 2014) is what we, in the US see. I’m looking forward to learning more about the machine. I think I’ll go looking elsewhere out there and see what I find.

    Thanks, in any case, for calling it to the readers’ attention, here. Nice work.
