Safe from grubby mitts?

Schoolboys are clearly the target audience as the Dell includes a "clean bottom" that's "vent-free to avoid any intrusion".

Dell's also offering an optional anti-bacteria keyboard to keep the laptops safe from whatever the mucky Molesworths may chuck at it. Chizz.

Buy it with XP, buy it with Vista or buy it with Ubuntu, you also get a choice of three- or six-cell battery. The three-cell version weighs in a 1.32kg (2.9lb).

Prices start at $369 in the US or £314 £290 over here - though that's minus VAT. ®
