"Wouldn't surprise me. We get sent the dregs here from many corporations including Dell. When I tried to order a computer on-line, they made me go to their international division, even though we are a US territory. The computer package differed with a poorer resolution monitor, and software that was a year older than that offered to US Dell."


First of all, Dell doesn't make ANY computers until they are ordered, so you aren't getting stock that may have been sitting in a store someplace (like you might with Compaq, HP, and the like).

Also, I went to the Dell site for the U.S. Virgin Islands. They offer the SAME models and the SAME options and the SAME software as sold right here in the Continental USA.

In fact, you get MORE options on the US Virgin Island site- you can configure the base model, whereas in the USA, it is not configurable.

Even the prices are the SAME. The only differences I could find were 1. web page layout and 2. the "special offers" were slightly different.
