Although the Dell Inspiron M5030 has been available on the market for some time, it looks like the laptop has been updated with an interesting feature. In an attempt to market their products to more members of the 50.5 Million Hispanics living in the US, Dell has gone ahead and refreshed the laptop’s keyboard and OS to make it more Spanish compatible.

According to Dell, the updated Inspiron M5030 will be the first laptop to sell in the US with a Spanish keyboard and OS. Previously, those interested in typing the elusive Spanish N (ñ) had to resort to a hotkey or head over to a Latin country and grab a laptop from there. However, Dell has customized their M5030 to include the ñ letter and a version of Windows 7 running in full Spanish mode and is making it available in the US.

Unfortunately, outside of the keyboard and OS changes, the M5030 appears to have stayed the same as before. It still sports the same AMD Athlon II P360 processor, a 15.6” screen with a 1366x768 pixel resolution, a 320GB HDD and 4GB of RAM. As of now the laptop is only available in limited release at BrandsMart USA stores in Florida and soon Georgia, but sales numbers could lead to a nationwide release later on. The Inspiron M5030 starts at $499 and was emphatically presented by a Dell employee in the video below.
