    DELL Monitor Shortage?

    Anyone else here finding problems with ordering Dell monitors?

    Just recieved some Dell PCs that should have had 17" AIO monitors, but instead came with 17" Wide screen TFTs. ( which can be rotated ) After contacting my Sales Manager ( 3rd party ) I have been told that Dell have big supply problems and currently the AIO have a lead time of 60 days!

    We just had a 2+ month wait for some Neovo 17" Glass fronted from Dell. Apparently there was a shortage and then they got stuck in customs.

    The Dell Schools Team were advising people to order early this year as they were expecting a shortage. They never gave me a reason though...

    Re: DELL Monitor Shortage?

    I know of a school that ordered 20 Dell laptops at the beginning of July, and they are due in sometime in October now.

    Similarly, I have two laptops that I have had on order since 8th July. They are now due in on 24th September.

    My supplier (3rd party) suggested that they might have some Athlon processor laptops in a warehouse somewhere, and they may be able to ship those out sooner.

    Eventually, the shortage is going to hit every computer manufacturer. It's just that Dell make them to order, and so they are feeling the effects first.

    Re: DELL Monitor Shortage?

    I suspect that we're at one of the change over periods; 17" monitors are on the way out and 19" ones are coming in.

    There were similar shortages when the change of "standard" from 15" to 17" happened.

    22,000 monitors sounds like a lot but it's less than 2 weeks output for Dell.

    Funny you should say that. Someone I was speaking to was saying the reason Dell are having so much trouble is that they only tend to order two weeks of monitor stock at a time, based on what they think they will need.
