Softpedia reports Dell updated its laptop lineup with the Inspiron R series. Most of the new models are based on Intel chips, but the company also introduced the AMD Phenom II-based Inspiron M501R.
The new notebooks that the company unveiled are known as Inspiron 13R, 14R, 15R, 17R and M501R. They can be seen as only slightly upgraded versions of their R-less counterparts, in that their builds are, more or less, the same, though there are more options when it comes to customizing the hardware and the software. They also boast a certain feature that makes them more user-friendly when it comes to accessing media.
Said feature is known as Dell Dock and will allow less knowledgeable consumers to make the best of their system. As for actual specs, the notebooks come with Intel Core CPUs, ATI graphics with up to 1GB VRAM, an HDD of up to 640GB, up to 8GB DDR3, SRS Premium Sound, built-in wireless and media card readers, HD LCD displays and multiple color options (Obsidian Black, Peacock Blue, Tomato Red and Lotus Pink). Consumers can take a closer look at each model by visiting the company's website. PCs are only, currently, selling in Australia and New Zeeland, but they should become more widely available soon.
