1.3MP integrated webcam.

So it looks like I ended up getting screwed out of my cash back (at least through PayPal?).
I contacted Dell and they told me the order was declined and it's an issue PayPal is having. Anyone else having this issue? I've heard nothing about random orders being declined due to a glitch. But whatever, I ended up having to use my CC over the phone to complete the order. Good bye 5%!

Edit: and it's not like I could have canceled the order and tried a new one. The coupon doesn't even work anymore.

Where do you see that the Inspiron 15 is at $349? I am getting $379 as the price. :(
It was $349 as a "doorbuster" but went up shortly after the sale started this morning. As I said though, the Vostro looks better anyway. The only thing better about the Inspiron is it has USB 3.0 which surprisingly the Vostro 2420 does not, it looks like :O

Neither has mSATA or even ExpressCard from what I can see, but most people don't end up using those anyway.

Is the shipping date accurate? mine is showing as 12/07/2012. Curious as to those who got the deal prior to this one had it shipped quicker.

Have the same shipping date. It will most likely come way before that.

This is their new low-end Vostro to replace the 1400 Series. I believe the body on these is all plastic & at this price point, it has to be. In the cheapo category, I'd say this is one of the better laptops build-wise though if it’s anything like it’s little brother.

Also, “London Slate” is the finish actually, not sure why it’s listed under the display, lol. Basically it’s a fake brushed metal look. It’s just a TN panel underneath.

Spoke to a rep and it comes with the following:

Ports, Slots & Chassis

Network connector RJ45
VGA
HDMI
(3) USB 2.0
AC adapter connector
Headphone jack
Microphone jack
Audio jack
3-in-1 card reader

^ That is the exact same copy/paste the live agent gave me...Waited 5min for him/her to copy/paste it!

The first 2 attempts to use Paypal did not work for me either. I logged into my Paypal account in another window and then it did work.

Yes - some issue for sure. Glad I got my 5%.

So the rep went on RFD and cut/paste or is that their standard cut/paste that the RFDer posted?
