    On Jan. 31, Intel announced a Stop Ship on its Sandy Bridge (new Core
    i-series) chipset. According to Intel, ports within the chipsets may
    degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or
    functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD

    What currently shipping Dell products are impacted?
    Effective immediately, we will remove those currently shipping Sandy
    Bridge platforms from our websites:
    * XPS 8300 desktop
    * Vostro 460 desktop
    * Alienware Aurora-R3 desktop
    * Alienware M17x-R3 notebook
    We will have more information next week on when these products will
    become available again.,2817,2378975,00.asp
