I bought a Dell 700m in late March. It is basically a pretty good machine with everything except the SD card reader slot working.
Now, that is. With 2.6.15 everything does work out of the box. With earlier kernels things didn't. So I happened to recall that people wanted Dell to recall the 700m because of the poor audio.
I have a worldwide international 3 year warranty on this thing, so I decided to call it in. Sure enough I got someone who indicated said that they would replace the motherboard. We had some back and forth and it appears Dell have solved the problem.
So I get my motherboard replaced and now
Let's see how things pan out. At least they've been kind and corteous so far.

I just bought a dual-CPU Dell and it actually bothered to display an EULA to me. I carefully inserted a CD, rebooted and formatted the disk.
When I buy a frigging machine with No OS installed then I'm not going to sign an EULA for no software.
