The Consumerist has a great analysis of how customers can get a better deal from Dell, but it turns out Dell didn't like that so much; they filed a bogus takedown demand.

If you're worried, you might consider copying down the article just in case lawyers get involved.

It contains information that is confidential and proprietary to Dell.

While not all aspects of the entry are accurate, ostensibly an ex-employee posted Dell's confidential information in violation of his or her employment agreement and confidentiality obligations (which prohibit the disclosure of such information both during and after the period of employment).
"Proprietary"? Good for a laugh... and Dell's behavior definitely failed the laugh test - they even turned around and admitted it (on the Dell Blog) today.

Ok, we goofed. We shouldn?t have sent a notice. To my earlier point, we appreciate the reminder from the community. Point taken. Yesterday, we also responded to a related IdeaStorm idea from user jmxz. To see more, take a look for comments from our own dell_admin1 and my good pal richard_b.
