This is obviously a mistake on Dell’s part, but you can’t help but imagine the folks over at Microsoft laughing and saying “we told you the Linux Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is higher than Windows”. As can be seen in the screenshot above, Dell is asking over $100,000 for the Linux version of its Mini 10n netbook, which can’t be right (we hope). Of course, this isn’t the first time (and certainly won’t be the last time) that Dell has mucked up the pricing, especially since it was asking for $3999 for a laser mouse a while back. Let’s see how long it takes Dell to get this error fixed.
Note: The price error is as shown in the screen shot at time of writing; Dell might have gotten smart to this and fixed it if you’re reading this late.
