If you’re the proud owner of a new Dell 6430u laptop, don’t be surprised if it smells like cat urine. Before you start blaming your cat, the source of the smell is actually from the manufacturing process that Dell uses to create the laptop’s plastic case. Dell has confirmed that the noxious odor isn’t toxic or dangerous in any way, but they have confirmed that they’re changing their manufacturing process so any new laptops won’t smell like cat urine.
If you’re using a non-Dell computer and it still smells like cat urine, there’s a good chance that your cat sprayed your computer. Either that or maybe the smell of cat urine is a new marketing technique that computer manufacturers are adopting as a way to differentiate their products from the competition.
