True - but the hybrid line built a bit of everything. I can't imagine it has been shut down, though after visiting every former Dell facility in the past few weeks, there is no telling. I'll post a website about that in the next few weeks.
At any rate, I own systems from BRK, EG1, TMC and WS1 - the only one missing from my collection in PN1. That's ironic, because that's the only plant that is still running!
While I understand your concerns about Dell not making the best system anymore, you will have a hard time convincing me that Acer, Gateway and HPs are THAT much better - besides, I want a PN1 system for nostalgia more than anything. All of the retail systems I'm finding are from Mexico - thank you, but no.
