I too have been talking with dell chat guys for quite a bit looking for this specific part. But it sounds like they either don't have this dummy module for the 700m yet or don't sell or send it separate from the system purchase. I heard the d600 dummy module fits in with the 700m, but i don't want to burn $30 (that's how much this costs separate from a system purchase) for a piece of filler plastic only to find it doesn't fit in my machine. In all, i've pretty much had it dealing with dell chat...or sales reps for that matter. they all seem completely oblivious to this part's existence...so why bother. if any of you guys who have the dummy module can post its manufacturing or part number on this thread, that might help...because the guys at dell are having a hell of a hard time finding it.
i'm thinking i'm just going to carry the 700m without any dummy module when i need it without the dvd drive. saves weight and...well, it might look ugly, but it's lighter. any reason you guys can think of that this might not be a good idea? other than the side looking exposed and ugly...i carry my 700m in a sleeve and a bag, so i don't think it'll be exposed too much.
