Just playing Devil's advocate here (mind you Dell doesn't appear ANYWHERE on my paycheck), but I dont' recall the XPS M1210 or ANY of Dell's laptops being marketed as studio level content creation machines. Let alone being marketed as ones for audio mastery. You act as though Dell has put on an elaborate deception at your expense. Yes, every soundcard on the market offers you the stereo mix option and onboard audio on desktop PCs gives you that option too. But mind you who Dell sells these laptops to, 95% of the people that own the XPSM1210 are people that dont' even know how to open the volume control panel. Let alone realize what Stereo Mix does. There's no need to go to the expense of coding, testing, recoding, and implementing such functionality for only 5% of users.
You don't have to like it. That's just how things arre, but you can always vote with your dollar.
