So, are the big panels on the lid LED panels, that come in one of four colours? is the brightness at least controllable? I turn my XPS Gen 2 lid lights off because, believe it or not, they shine through the screen (when there are dark colours on the screen) I do keep the speaker and vent lights on (pulsing to the beat of the music!)
I guess I'm still really curious, even though the terrible port configuration and placement makes this rig rather user-hostile, to me.
Looking through the technical manual their appear to be a row of LED's along the inside edge of the inserts that light sideways through them - guessing the inserts must be translucent to some degree. there are also LED's behind the Dell logo in the center. I did not notice anywhere in the manual anything regarding controlling the lid LED's in any way, they are not mentioned in any of the quickset stuff. I had hoped they would be colour controlable too but that seems very unlikely with the inserts being coloured.
