Dell lawsuit docs show active hiding of issue

More documents have been unsealed in a lawsuit over defective Dell workstations that have revealed the company directly told staff to hide the extent of the problems. Presentations from 2003 to 2005, and even sometime later, told workers to not only avoid telling customers "proactively" about capacitor problems with Optiplex workstations but to "emphasize uncertainty" and cloud the issue. Staff who questioned the wisdom of replacing broken systems with known flawed parts were told that this strategy, rather than a permanent fix, was ultimately the most helpful.

New Dell Optiplex USFF uses full Core 2 Duo

Dell on Thursday touted a rare approach to pro desktops with one of the smallest ever.

Dell OptiPlex 160 specs

Dell on Tuesday released specifications of its smallest commercial desktop PC, the OptiPlex 160, which was first introduced as part of a wider Optiplex release back at the end of October.

A dual-core Atom with the same clock speed is due early in 2009.
