We’re aware of concerns raised in this post. At this point, our teams are looking into the details.  When we have more information to share, we’ll update customers via a post on Dell’s blog, Direct2Dell.

I've had an E6400 for about a year now, and after the "ultrasharp" display that looks worse than most those on most budget laptops, the absolutely terrible track-pad, unstable drivers, DCP's ability to add an extra minute to startup time, and now the revelation that the performance problems I've been experiencing since day one are actually the result of a known BIOS issue, I can assure you that i will not be purchasing a Dell product again.
