Looks like Dell recently decided to save on shipping charges, by cutting down on packaging. More than cutting down… by eliminating the packaging in its whole.
Too bad cause the mini9 box is actually rather nice, but with packing slip on the back and shipping label on the front there’s not much surface left to the eye.
Not to mention that some extra cushioning might help reducing DOA returns. On the positive notes though, the one I got at my doorstep despite the lack of packaging, was in perfect condition and booted up like a charm 🙂
