    Default Dell halts Chromebook online sales, cites rising demand (ComputerWorld)

    Dell halts Chromebook online sales, cites rising demand - Overwhelmed by commercial orders, Dell can't keep up

    "Due to strong demand, the Dell Chromebook 11 is currently not available for order on Dell.com. It continues to be available for our education customers and can be ordered through their sales representative," said Ellen Murphy, a Dell spokeswoman, in an e-mail.

    Seems strange that they wouldn't just find a way to pick up production.

    I would imagine that's what they're trying to do, but they have to actually catch up on their orders in the meantime and make sure they can fulfill orders for the upcoming school season.

    They probably are, but it's not like they can just reach over the turn the knob to 11.... there's probably a whole crapton of moving parts that they have to get lined up before they can pump them out in higher numbers... suppliers, production line facilities, etc...
