Dell is now charging $10 for the backup Windows CD when you configure a i600m, i700m, and i6000. I just went to Dell and found out about it by trying to configure a system even though I already receive my new laptop 2 weeks ago. They do not have the option available for the 9300, so I guess you 9300 owners can still get it for free. I bet if you purchase a 600m, 700m, or 6000 you can still get them for free by requesting them through email. Is this a coincidence or not? Last week I asked for the backup CD and driver CD through email. 2 days later I got them, FREE! I think that Dell loses money (albeit small) by shipping the CDs. I think the $10 is just to cover the shipping costs of the CDs since I think they ship them with 2-day shipping.
