I've not gotten mine, but I'm stoked about the color! I originally planned on spending $400 [with an employee discount], but had to bump it up because of the red!

Hope it looks like the one posted previously, Love that Fire engine red!

I am pretty sure that is not a skin. brynden29 works for dell so I believe that is the actual red lid. That is also how he was able to provide the part number for it as well.

unfortunately its only available at the point of sale

12:40:54 PM Customer
Okay thank you.

Dell just doesn't want to take my money on this one. Actually, I didn't intend to purchase it right now, I was just inquiring for a price.
I have called Dell several times for this part and got a similar answer a couple of times. However, there were 2 guys that told me that the part can indeed be ordered but they don't have it available right now and that they have an ETA of December 20th. He told me to call back around that date to check. And the price is exactly that: US$25.00 + Tax + S/H.
