With the Dell Inspiron 15R we decidedly leave the Ultrabook world and go onto larger, somewhat bulkier laptops. But that’s alright, because the 15R does come with quite the feature list to offset its porkier appearance:
All Inspiron 15R Special Edition models have backlit keyboard, 2GB Radeon HD 7730M discrete graphics, 1080p display, Waves MaxxAudio 4 + Skullcandy speakers, and Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 and Premier Elements 9 bundle. [These] laptops get an anodized aluminum body in Stealth Black with a precision-etched honeycomb design. Includes four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI v1.4a, 8-in-1 card reader, HD webcam, and more.
Today’s configuration includes a Core i7-3612QM 2.3GHz Quad-core CPU, 8GB 1600MHz RAM, 750GB 7200RPM Hard Drive and 8X DVD Burner. And while it would normally cost $1,138, after today’s rebate, it can be yours for $975.
