    Is it possible that Dell only manufactured that particular laptop skin/case in the configuration that includes a slot/hole for the integrated biometric reader? If so, you'd have to order the reader with the case, or have a gaping hole in your laptop where the reader should be.

    Pssible... but that would be a gaping hole in the logic of skin designer.... welcome to PHD blog... 🙂

    Maybe Dell's broadening their market to finger painters.

    Were you really interested in that skin? Or just exploring?

    Maybe it's been fixed. I went there, selected bunch of surfers, went to check out and didn't get a compatibility issue.

    Pretty funny error though. If someone else replicates it, let me know.
