Don't have any idea what's the reason for that.

If you can explain why you have to pay $40 for a different skin color on laptops, which cost no more than black, then you can explain this.

Firefox is free to install right. Why not opt out of the it, I know I would if the option were available.

I'm on the Dell site right now - There are also options for BIOS settings (wake-on-lan set to enabled, fastboot set to auto, TPM security set to on/enabled, boot first device...these are all individual options with an £8.40 price tag...and you can bundle them for £9.10!). Oh and there's an extra charge if you want HDD partitioning!

Absolutely shocking! Could end up overtaking EA as Consumer Choice Worst Company of the Year and that's a tall order.

Good for amateurs out there to to make a buck, install free antivirus stuff, and any other useful software for people who otherwise don't know how, or don't want to do it themselves.

Still, 30 or so bucks is crazy...
