Oops: Dell Offers $33 Laptops in Mexico
Via the BBC: Dell error hands Mexicans $33 laptop bargain
Mexican officials have ordered Dell Computers to honour the sale of laptops that had been mistakenly advertised online for just 679 pesos (£27; $33).
The computers normally sell for up to 50,000 pesos (£1,990; $2,500).
But because of an apparent software malfunction, only the shipping costs – 679 pesos – were included in an advert published earlier this month.
