What going on w/ Dell Monitors?

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

Checking the Dell web site configuration for Dimension desktops, I notice an
absence of higher end flat screen monitors. Is there a transition going on
to newer, to as yet undisclosed models?

    *Which* Dell web site? And using what route in making selections
    on that Dell web site? What is your definition of "higher end
    flat screen monitors?"


    By going in on the main site, and not through either the
    Home/Home Office or Small Business pages, I went through a
    desktops link to find lots of models with plenty of flat screen
    monitor options. Given that lack of knowledge of your definition
    of high end, I was unable to determine if any of them would have
    met your desires.

    I guess in my ignorance I assumed that Dell's site for home office
    configuration for Dimension desktops would have their complete selection of
    flat screen (LCD) monitors. I'm looking to buy a Dimension system with a for
    my home office but I guess looking at Dell's home office site was a mistake.
    Here's the LCDs they offer:


    17 in E173FP Flat Panel Display [add $220 or $6/month1]


    19 in E193FP Flat Panel Display [add $348 or $10/month1] May
    delay your Dimension 8400 ship date


    15 in (15.0 in viewable) E153FP Flat Panel Display [add $152 or
    $4/month1


    Somehow, the above does not fit my idea of a high end monitor. Maybe
    something called "Ultrasharp" might better fit my definition of a high end
    LCD monitor. Why aren't they given as options when configuring a Dimension
    8400 or 6400 machine? Is Dell planning to offer some newer models not
    offered elsewhere on their site? Their 1504 and 1703 models are discounted
    on their separate monitor section of their site. Maybe they're being
    discontinued.??

    Try the Small Business side. They list about 5 Ultra Sharps. It *may* be
    cheaper there too depending on what configuration you are looking at and
    what state you live in.

    (As a side - I'd look at the 4700 instead of the 4600.)

    You may be right about new offerings....I saw this on their site and I think
    it is new;
    19 in 1905FP Dell UltrasharpT Digital Flat Panel Display
    It even said that selecting this monitor may delay your system....

    Curiouser and Curiouser. When I checked the Dell sites
    Wednesday, in preparation for my response to the OP, the wording
    on the note for that monitor said something like "Monitor will be
    shipped later than system." Now, as you say, all of those notes
    have been changed to "will delay your system".

    FWIW, I thought the first choice was the more sensible for the
    customer, albeit probably not for Dell. Other than newbies, most
    of us typically have a monitor already, one that we could use on
    the new system pending arrival of our new flat panel, whilst
    getting the new computer configured, loaded, etc. Heck, I
    suspect I'm not alone in having a spare 17" monitor sitting
    beside my "computer parts box", lest [as he knocks on wood madly]
    the 19" I'm currently using goes south.
