Speaking to Tom's Hardware, a Walmart spokesperson said, "Yesterday, we briefly removed the OP desktops to update product information. They are now back on the site."

They lowered the price on the DTW 1 to 999.  So people who bought one a week ago might be PO'ed anyway.
The DTW 3 is down to 1699 which is insane considering what the 1080Ti alone used to sell for.

Better be some refunds in order. Maybe this time they'll plug in the PCIe power cables too.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Pretty crazy that they've dropped $400 less than a month after release. Clear sign of desperation from Walmart.

 

I've been updating the Tech News thread for the Walmart PCs as it develops with the restock and now the price drop, if you wanted to check that out.

The reputation of these has been severely damaged meaning they won't sell very well, they are a laughing stock and it would be daft for someone to purchase one.

"Overpowered" more like "Underpowered". $2100 gaming PC doesn't include dust filter. Air intake on the side in the front is a bad idea as well.

The average consumer in the US might buy Wal-Mart's PC because it is a name they know.  They know that Wal-Mart will exist in two years while it seems that every other brand could disappear in a flash.  (Memba when it seemed like HP would go bankrupt some years back?)  A 3 year warranty isn't worth a dime if the company goes bust.

Even at the discounted price, I refuse to touch something that has an I/o cable glued into place. That's sketchy AF.
