We ageed to buy from Dell Korea and the ordering process was easy and painless. Since the Dell Korea website is in Korean, our supervisor from work helped us navigate through the options. The final product was the Inspiron 640m--a 14" widescreen (with a TrueLife display) notebook with the latest Intel Centrino Duo Core processor running @ 1.83ghz, 60GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 8x DVDRW, Intel Pro/Wireless, 9 cell extended battery, free optical USB mouse and a copy of Windows XP Home. Now, I'm sure you enjoyed reading these specs--computer nerds would be salivating like a pack of hyenas over a gazelle carcass at these numbers.
The price was comparable to ordering from Dell Canada. We paid by transferring money directly from our bank account to Dell Korea. The laptop was scheduled to arrive in a week but it was delayed due to Chuseok. Nevertheless, onto Devante's new toy!
"Dude, you're getting a Dell!" (remember this guy from TV?):

Here's the package...what a nice surprise to see this as we arrived at work:
I formatted the hard drive (to remove the Dell bloatware), partitioned the drive and reinstalled Windows XP Home (it's okay if you have no idea what I'm talking about--cuz neither do I!):
