Hopefully claim validation means do nothing and the digital card will be delivered via email when the laptop ships?

Do you have details on Ethernet?
I suspect it's realtek based on drivers but I wouldn't mind knowing exactly.
Sorry, nope. Nothing in the order details about the ethernet. I did see reviews complaining that it's only 10/100, though.

WTF.

Sorry, I meant does it get credited to your ebates account immediately. According to the ebates website though it says up to 48 hours.

Just curious how fast it happened for others.

AMD is far superior if you're going to do some light gaming and want to play esports titles that isn't SC2. However do you mind the larger size? I want something portable and so 14" is the largest I'm willing to get. Only problem is that the one in OP sucks for gaming.

Can someone here confirm with absolute certainty that there is an empty DIMM slot and either SATA/M.2 slot?

Yup, it is 10/100 :facepalm:
Not sure why Dell gimped this, especially in 2019.

It states there are two SODIMM slots, along with 2.5" HD and M2 slots.
Wow. I guess I'm going to buy one. There's a lot of value in this deal.

Dell's page does state that the fingerprint reader is optional. Is it really optional? I don't see an option to add it. I really want it.

I would actually send it back. 10/100 is ducking ridiculous 10 years ago.
Today is just a joke.

Don't tell me I have to check my stupid G3. If that's 10/100 it's actually going back.
