A number of Dell users have complained that their Latitude 6430u Ultrabooks "smell of cat urine".

Unless the mice are infected with toxoplasmosis gondii.

I've used a Dell laptop. Trust me, it's not urine. Close, but....

I still own the pieces of a Dell laptop, and the odor is persistent even disassembled.

Keep an eye out on the local discounters -- "Where if the deal doesn't smell fishy we haven't done our job"

"Hey, the mouse won't work on this thing..."

"Well, this one passed the cat urine spray test so we can send it to the customer now."

Probably Windows related.

Rename it the Latitude 6430pu and charge a premium.

"This laptop is a little smelly, but it sure does purr".

Hey everybody from Turkey.I know incredibly tiny English.Very awesome web internet site, with thanks..
