According to the Sydney Morning Herald, passengers can still check and carry on their Dells, but only use them when batteries are removed.
However, there is confusion at some airports according to the newspaper - with some passengers finding security staff removed Dell batteries and taped up the contact points.

The Australian prohibition, where it's enforced, applies to all Dell notebooks and not just for machines the firm warned might have problems with batteries. µ
