    Re: DELL Monitor Shortage?

    There ha been quite a shortage on 17" TFTs across the board. Widescreens are readily available at a good price but if you want standard 17" TFTs, prices have increased a lot over the last 6 weeks due to supply problems.

    Rumour is that 17" will be phased out soon for 19" Not sure that this will be favourable for schools though because obviously space is an issue with so many of you

    We are waiting on about 75 of them from Dell for our AIO's. An earlier batch came fine but these lot are going to be at leat a few weeks yet

    Only problem is we had already got rid of the equipment they were replacing so we are now stuck with the actual towers themselves and no screens...whoops

    As already mentioned 17" 4:3 panels are in constraint and dell probably did not forcast enought stock. What you have to remember is that it is 4 weeks shipping plus any assembly time from the manufacturers to dell.

    Sorry to bump in here, but those looking for good screen in general, this months (and next) HP offer sheet has 3 TFTs on it, just bought one of the 20" Widescreen ones and with cashback on it it wil have cost £140, and its not just a normal widescreen 20" TFT, its a super duper one which pivots, swivels, turns, makes cups of tea and has a USB hub in it as well.
