Ecommerce package that mimics Dell configurator

Hi guys

I'm looking for an e-commerce package that offers a tool/function similar to Dell's Configurator.

Here's what it does (you can see this yourself at dell.com)

1. Start with your base model. Customer clicks "Select" icon
2. Opens a popup
3. The customer scrolls through a list of options they can select from.
4. At the base of the Popup the total price is continually updated
5. Allows a user to complete the order.

X-cart has a configurator module, but it takes the customer back to the catalogue to select the add-on, which can be confusing.

I imagine the backend should be able to manage the relationships between various products.

Alternatively, has anybody coded anything similar before? I'd be willing to pay for this. Just PM me...

I haven't heard of a cart that does this off the shelf. So, you'd need to write it yourself. I suggest you look at elastic path or similar developer friendly cart.
