Subject: News Flash! No More Windows Discs!
Dell was the last of the major OEMs to furnish a genuine Windows
disc (albeit an OEM version) as well as a Resource DVD.
Not any more.
"Dell no longer provides the operating system or resource disks in the
box for Windows 7 Systems. It is important for you to create recovery
disks in case of a hard drive failure. If you do not create the
disks, there may be a charge from Dell for the operating system
Now I'll admit that "Dell DataSafe Local Backup 2.0" is an impressive
piece of work. But it's not a Windows disc.
And for those of you who are concerned about how this will affect my
recent order of a Studio XPS 8100...essentially, no one...I'm
negotiating with Dell. I placed my order just 8 days after this
was first published.
I've purchased three Dell laptops in the last three months from Best
Buy, including one about 10 days ago.
All came with full Windows CDs. Not sure about the link or what
machines they're talking about.
Best Buy can make its own arrangements with Dell.
You bought a computer from Best Buy?
