Depilatory Dell debuts beard-busting laptop?
Dell is to enter the male grooming market and offer an electric shaver with its new Z-series Inspiron laptops, it would seem.
Dells signals move to become the Boots of IT
How else can we explain the headline on the company's website: "Dell's New Inspiron 'Z' laptops prove beauty and Braun go together."
The new notebooks are the Inspiron 14z and 15z, both 1in thick but equipped with 16:9 widescreen displays - the model numbers indicate the sizes - up to 8GB of 1067MHz DDR 3 memory, up to 500GB of 7200rpm Sata hard drive storage and an Intel processor selected from a choice of Pentium, ultra-low voltage Core 2 Solo and Core 2 Duo.
Dell's Inspiron 14z: ideal for the five o'clock shadow?
Wi-Fi comes as standard - 3G connectivity is an optional extra.
The machines come with a four-cell, four-hour battery as standard, but buyers can opt for a six-cell, eight-hour power pack if they prefer.
The Inspiron 14z and 15z are available in black or cherry red and can be purchased in the US from $599. There's no word yet on UK pricing and availability.
Or indeed which model of shaver the laptops will ship with.
Oh, wait a minute, maybe they mean 'brawn'... ®

As to the laptop, whether or not it has a brazilian it's a nice piece of kit.
Grinds yer beans
Braun also makes some coffee equipment. And everyone knows computers and coffee go together. So there, I've solved that mystery for you. Let me know when the cheque's ready.
Paris, because she also goes with coffee, I've no doubt.
Out sourcing, I suppose. Sometimes you get what you pay for.
CPU fan doubles as shaving blade
No, they really mean Braun. The CPU cooling fan doubles as a shaving blade. The downside to this arrangement is that you have to run a high load on the system while grooming, and the trimmings get blown all over your face.
