Thank you for contacting Dell Hardware e-Support.
My name is Sucheta and I will be assisting you with your Dell Latitude
I understand from your message that you would like to know if the system has internal microphone.
I am sorry to tell you but these systems are not shipped with internal microphone.
I hope this information will help you, If you have any further queries please feel free to revert.

Are you serious guys?? I'd better stick to my D600 then....
I recommended DELL to two of my relo in the last two months and both were very disappointed that there were no internal MICs in their Inspirons machine; I thought it was only because it was not the latitude range but now this does not sound good at all.
CAN WE GET AN EXPLANATION DELL? IS IT THAT COSTLY TO BUILD A MIC IN?????????
I can assure DELL that a lot of your new customers would go somewhere else especially after the popularity of Voice Over IP and the need for MIC.....
SivakannanI would have returned my machine, if you are in real need for MIC and I'd have asked asked DELL to train their sales team more about new machines.
On the other hand, I hope you bought a Bluetooth adapter, in such a case you can use a Bluetooth headset and get advantage of a better voice quality and cordless conectivity.
I totally agree, a big disappionntment for me too..
NO microphone!!! bad laptop!!! useless laptop!!! terrible item, please dell fix this!!
