A Dell Computer spokesman was unable Friday to confirm whether it was a Dell-made laptop that exploded last week in Japan.
Photos of the incident, plus an eyewitness account, were published June 21 at The Inquirer Web site.
A witness identifying him or herself as Gaston claims the device was a Dell.
Dell isn't the only company interested in just what happened. Google has a lot riding on its new relationship with Dell, one in which some of Google's search features come pre-installed in Dell laptops.
