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

Dell engineers have ruled out biological contamination, and said the smell was not a health hazard.

The problem lay in the manufacturing process, which has now been changed, the company said.

Pah, I was hoping the 'u' in 6430u stood for 'urine'.

People who don't own cats. They can enjoy the smell of cat urine without the hassle that comes with owning them.
