Identification and Background ¶
Ranked #38 on the Fortune 500, Dell is one of the most prominent and respected names in computer hardware.
Dell makes several lines of business and personal laptops, including Adamo, Alienware, Inspiron, Latitude, Precision, Studio, Vostro, and XPS.
Your Dell laptop can be identified from other manufacturers by the Dell logo printed on the top of the laptop, or by the name under the screen. On newer Dell business class laptops, this is on the bottom of the keyboard trim. The specific model and service number for each Dell is printed on the underside of the computer.
