Dell sued over False ADs claims

August 13, 2006 at 10:00 pm (Hardware)

In China DELL advertised its new Laptops and got in trouble as it turned out that its laptops contained a different, cheaper chip than those advertised. The Intel T2300 chip was missing and a $32 cheaper model T2300E was used.

According to state media reports at least 20 lawsuits have been filed against the Texas-based firm. In a statement on its Direct2Dell website, Dell admitted it had made an “unfortunate and unintended marketing mistake” and apologized for the error.
