iPods missing from Dell’s website

A brief check of Dell’s website, www.dell.com, revealed a distinct lack of iPods.  Only 5 mp3 players are listed, and the iPod is not among them.  Whether or not the absence is temporary remains to be seen.

If an item is backordered for 3+ weeks, it’s automatically removed from Dell’s website.  You can still order though.  I had this problem when I ordered a TabletPC.  When I finally decided to order, it was gone.  A Dell sales rep told me about the 3 week issue and took my order.  YMMV, but I’d say this is what’s behind the disappearance of iPods at dell.com.

Hey, you know me! To hell with Dell!  You can order an iPod direct from the source!  Give me an A!

I ordered a 30GB iPod from Dell on 5/15 (utilizing 3 discounts posted on dealmac.com) and just received it on 7/3. They offered to cancel my order on a couple of occassions; which was very considerate of them since it cost $404 out the door and surely a loss for them. I loved sticking it to Dell almost as I enjoyed the deep discount.
