Okay guys, methinks the rumor has been significantly annihilated.

And about Dell going bankrupt, I can't really say anything about that but I do know that yesterday when I called about my order status I spoke with someone with a thick accent. When I asked where the department was located he told me that it was located in India. Wouldnt Dell do this to save money or then again to make more money I guess. Either way I didnt like it and I think Dell should have all of their departments in the U.S. or at least somewhere like Austrailia, or the U.K. where they can speak english and be understood.

Please don't start senseless rumors.

Let's get back to the original post, eh?
I think that if Progneta did what he says and snagged a double-deal and slipped one by on Dell, more power to Progneta! I'd be so stoked to have snagged a deal like that at Dell's expense... especially since they were so "kind" as to send me my $1.6k I9100 "performance" desktop replacement with a sub-par, crappy Hitachi LCD that ghosts like Poltergeist 2 and has enough light leakage to read by.
Well they can have that POS back. I'm RMA'ing it monday. All you WUXGA I9100 owners and XPS owners should thank the Notebook Gods that you didn't opt for the WSXGA. Those that did and got Samsung, well thank the Gods a well.
