    In true Dell tradition, it will come with some additional features not present in the regular Makerbot Replicators:

    * The custom Dell firmware will be the same as the regular Makerbot firmware, but will come with additional Dell branded support features that make your printer go 1/2 the speed. You can however, uninstall these tools.

    * It will come with free red filament, a 30-day free trial blue filament, a "light" green filament.
    The red filament will not be compatible with your new 3D printer. The blue filament will automatically bill your credit card after 30 days even if you have not used it. The "light" green filament is half the diameter of the "full" green filament and will cause your prints to break. You can optionally upgrade this to the "full" green filament for half price.

Line Printer paper is strongest at the perforations.
