The Dell sales chat line cannot provide me an answer. What a joke! My question is about the front panel configuration for the USB ports, phone and mic jacks, card readers and the DVD drive. Are any of them located in the bottom portion of the panel? The desktop computer is to be placed on the floor so it makes sense if they are accessible from the top front.

Too much trouble to go to the Dell site & look at the picture gallery?

Putting a tower on the floor is not a wise move.

I always put it under my desk with a raised platform underneath. The gallery shows something like three bays in the upper portion (all concealed) and apparently nothing in the lower part. I want to ask someone who owns it to give me more details. If you own it can you tell me where they actually are?

Try it. In some computers not all the bays are the same size. I don't know about that Dell butother Dells and HP/Compaqs have different depth bays where there is insufficient depth to move or swap the drive position or insufficient clearance for cables. Also the front bezels may not fit correctly.

"I always put it under my desk with a raised platform underneath"

You didn't mention a raised paltform in the OP.

"The gallery shows something like three bays in the upper portion (all concealed) and apparently nothing in the lower part"

Correct. And if you looked at ALL the pictures, you'd see that the 2nd bay has a door which hides the audio ports & USB ports. There is NOTHING at the bottom. This is all shown very clearly in the pictures.

"If you own it can you tell me where they actually are?"

I would never own a Dell.

Mickliq - such a general statement without trying a dell. All manufacturers make good and bad machines. Sometimes you get a lemon. It's all relative.
