To quote Walt Mayo, vice president Dell Consumer Asia: “This is a laptop that moms will love and youths will desire.” We can’t say we fit that demographic in any way, shape, or form, but we can appreciate the “smudge-resistant palm rests, full-size, ergonomically-designed keyboard and stiffer frame” when compared to the other Inspirons. These seem to be available now over in Australia and New Zealand, which means that order pages could go live at any moment for the rest of planet Earth.
