Dell.com Site Search acting weird today

FYI: The Dell Zino is (was?) a small form factor machine that could be used as a portable server, probably a bit larger than a Mac Mini, but still portable.

If you go to Dell.com and use their search and do a one word search for "zino" you get 8 results, but none of them are for that machine.  7 are for memory sims, and the bottom result is for a different dell machine, a small tower.  At first I was worried that perhaps they had discontinued the cute little guy.

I sent to Google and one of the suggested searches was "dell zino discontinued", aw... I was afraid of that.. But wait! - The first page didn't actually say it was discontinued, it just had those words in a long discussion thread.  And the second result goes to the Zino page on Dell.com, and it is still listed, though I wasn't able to actually buy it.  When you click the "choose" link you're asked to choose a market segment but the list was empty.  Maybe it's not for sale and their site search knows to know display it???
