Why does Dell ship only VGA cables?

sprior (249994) writes "When you configure a new desktop system from Dell the only primary display choices all come only with analog VGA cables even though both the LCD display and the system support DVI. In fact when you add a BluRay drive to the system they also include BluRay player software which won't actually work with a VGA cable (no HDCP). I knew better than to use the VGA cable, but lots of Dell customers won't, and Dell doesn't even give you a place to order one even if you know better.

I haven't figured out yet how to contact Dell at a level able to work on this. Maybe if this gets public enough they'll be embarrassed enough to fix this."

Stop using technology that interferes with your ability to access media you paid for and have every right to playback how you damn well please.
