This particular Dell Inspiron 15R has switchable lids, which seems to be the newer cosmetic feature on this laptop. It’s been described thusly: “Dell periodically gives the series a physical makeover, but small differences in fit and finish are almost beside the point; this is still the go-to laptop line for reasonably priced systems that offer mainstream performance at palatable prices.” As we’ve said before, the Inspiron is Dell’s workhorse and it gets reasonable discounts now and then. Today the Core i5 with 8GB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive, Intel HD 3000 graphics, DVD+/-RW, 802.11n, Bluetooth, HD webcam, 15 months McAfee, 1yr service plan, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS gets a $353 rebate, going down from $1,028 to $675. That’s a good amount of laptop for a not-that-large amount of cash.
Offer is good until tomorrow.
