Dell Inspiron R: Inspiron gets specs bump!

NEW GADGET: It is just been two months since we were invited to a DELL event and today, there is another press release to inform the world; Dell has yet again revise their Inspiron series and called it the ‘R’ Series this time!

After a quick run through, I gathered a few highlights that you might want to know:

  • The Inspiron is Dell’s “general purpose” laptop series.
  • Inspiron ‘R’ series gives the Inspiron series something like a refresh of the specifications, mainly the processors (icore now) and graphics cards
  • There are two new bundle software: Dell Dock and DataSafeOnline, in short sharing of media in a fast and secured manner (whether you agree or not is another matter!)

If you are confused with all the models of laptops in the market and often say to yourself: “Why don’t the manufacturers just come out with a few standards models for consumers to choose from?”, you are not alone.

Of course there are fundamental reasons why there are so many models of laptops from each manufacturer, with model number such as A132439843BSEKJDE, are: One, consumers always need more choices, more models means more sales!. And two, so that their local retailers can customize the various hardware specifications to each area.
