Dell has informed UK tech fans that its newly-announced range of Inspiron R laptops will not bring the optional touchscreen offered to buyers in the US.
However, the company has informed PCPro that: "none of the Inspirons announced at CES available in the UK will have a touchscreen."
As to why Dell doesn't trust us Brits with the touchscreen option remains to be seen.
However, it's not all bad news. The new Inspiron R laptops boast a six-cell battery and new low-voltage Intel Ivy Bridge processors, meaning longer battery life.
The Inspiron R will come in 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch models and will start at £399.
Custom configurations will be available, with full HD resolution screens, and Intel's i7 processor, depending on the user's demands.
