Dell has unveiled new versions of its award-winning Inspiron laptops in collaboration with Intel. The new Inspiron 15 and 15R systems have been optimized for better performance and improved battery life in packages that are thinner than previous generations of Inspirons.
Equipped with the latest technology, the new Inspiron family features increased battery capacities for the 6-cell versions of the laptops, utilizing the ultra-low voltage versions of Intels 4th Generation Core-I processors. Requiring only 17 watts to run, the new energy-efficient processors use less than half the power requirements of those installed in last years Inspiron laptops, resulting in longer battery life.
The redesigned Inspirons are 15% lighter than the previous generation, and 17% slimmer with the 4-cell batteries, making them under 1-inch thin.
“Our customers told us they wanted better battery life without sacrificing on overall performance, and they wanted thin and portable laptops. The new Inspiron portfolio delivers both power and performance, packed in lighter and smaller full-featured laptops that are perfect for everyday computing needs of families and students,” said Shahzad Aslam Khan, Country Manager, Dell Afghanistan and Pakistan.
“In less than a years time we have worked closely with our customers to bring Intel-based products to market. Looking forward, we will build upon this foundation and work closely with our ecosystem partners, across operating systems, to deliver the best products and experiences for consumers with Intel Inside.” said Naveed Siraj, Country Manager Intel.
The laptops are available with Intels Core i3, i5 and i7 processor options, and support higher-end features like 3×3 dual-band wireless support based on the latest Wi-Fi N standards, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI 1.4a, and stereo speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 4 processing that was introduced in the high-end XPS laptops. They also come preloaded with Skype and H.264 enablement for HD video chats or calls. With the Intel wireless card, all these systems support Intels wireless display standard. Beyond these hardware and software enhancements, the laptops all have touch pads that are optimized to take advantage of multi-touch gestures in Windows 8.
The Inspiron 15 is designed for customers who want the best features at Dells most affordable prices. The laptops are offered in 15 inches. Apart from the abovementioned features, these two models come in a black matte textured finish inside with a Chiclet keyboard and support up to 8GB system RAM and hard drive options up to 1TB. Customers have the option to upgrade from the standard Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics to discrete NVIDIA GeForce or AMD Radeon graphics cards with either 1 or 2GB of video memory. The many options and possibilities for customization make these Inspiron laptops versatile instruments, offering great performance on everything from basic productivity to effortlessly streaming HD video content.
Inspiron 15 features a 720p WLED 1366 x 768 display with Truelife.
For customers who want a little more personalization and feature options, Dell offers the new mainstream Inspiron 15R systems. Both models come standard with the Moon Silver brushed aluminum finish, but can also be ordered in optional Peacock Blue, Fire Red, or Lotus Pink colors. The Inspiron 15R includes a dedicated 10-key numeric keypad for straightforward number entry.
