    Apparently, recent efforts at developing incendiary laptops have not gone unnoticed at the Pentagon. Dell was awarded a new contract with the US Military earlier this week which is valued at up to $5 billion USD.The contract is for laptops, desktops, displays, printers, and peripherals – so basically, anything that Dell sells. It will be in effect for three years, with the total purchase ceiling set at the above-mentioned $5 bn. This particular contract comes with an option for extension for a total of 10 years, which is a pretty long contract for technology that moves so quickly.The last contract with the military was made in 2001 with many computer manufacturers (including Dell), and was only worth $300 million total.Finally, a reason for Dell to set things on fire.
