Dell 15″ Inspiron has been with me for a long time now – battered, bruised, manhandled keyboard…Still the old faithful is by my side.

So, when Dell announced the 17 ” sibling of the old guard, i had to take a peek , and to say the least – It came on my wish list (not to offend my old friend at all..)

It comes for all ages and styles in 3 striking colors – Cherry Red, Black or Ice Blue…

  • Storage – Up to 500 GB

  • Connectivity – 802.11g & 802.11n with optional Bluetooth capabilities..
