No Extra Charge

How would you like to pay between $900 and $1300 for a laptop that smells like cat urine? The Dell customers who did just that were not too happy about it. Especially the ones with cats as many of them were scolding their kitties for it. Dell says it was a manufacturing problem that has been corrected, but what manufacturing procedure caused that kind of smell??

The picture was chosen because it looks exactly like our cat Toby. 😊

Urea is a major part of urine after water. Urea is used in the manufacturing of some plastics and glues.

My theory is based on cheese. New cheese has almost no smell and some will age to YUCK. Some chemical processes will set up fast; but still continue to on.

Possibly the Dell assembly plant has a disgruntled employee.

If I paid that much for a computer that smelled bad, I'd be pretty pissed off!(or should that be pissed on!) :lol: :lol:

As a bit of trivia, I heard on the radio that all mammals empty their bladders in about 20 second on average. From a mouse with a few drops to an elephant with gallons. Gravity and surface tension play a big part. Who knew?

Especially the ones with cats? I'd think that they would at least be used to the smell. Those of us who neither have nor want one of the vermin in our living spaces would have even more reason to complain.
