Dell Inspiron Duo teardown

Opening the box

As of this writing, the Inspiron Duo is available from Dell for $549.99 (US). Unlike most Dell machines, the Duo is available in only one hardware configuration. Your only choice is between a case that's either "Foggy Night Black" or "Marlin Blue".

Our cracking open unit, which was purchased directly from Dell, was came in a plain cardboard box. This is definitely no-frills packaging.
