Furthermore, if you compare the right-side views of the Woot photo and the one in the Dell gallery, the connections are completely different.
And then there's the obvious - the model numbers are different!
And if you search for this model on Dell Support, you get as far as "Laptop," "Inspiron," and there's no model number close to this one's.
The mystery continues...
edit: I think this might be it: Inspiron 17 (1764)
It is presently offered in "Ice Blue" or "Promise Pink", but there's a black one in the gallery, and it has the "1764" in the model number, and looks the same as the Woot pictures.
The mobility Radeon card (which the Woot model doesn't seem to have) is the same one listed in reviews for the Woot model number (there's a different one offered with the 17R).
Here's the accessories page.
