Late Thursday night Dell made a pricing typo on their website selling 19" LCD monitors for $15

The Dell website in Taiwan made a crucial pricing error when it listed a $150 LCD monitor for only $15.

In the eight hours it took Dell to figure out and pull the ad, 26,000 people had already ordered close to 140,000 monitors.

Dell did say they would honor the price goof for the people that only ordered one monitor, but people who ordered more than one would receive discounts on the rest.
