Dell Inspiron 1520 and 1720 specials from Dell Home

Dell Home has just launched two new specials on the Inspiron 1520 and Inspiron 1720 laptops.

First up, the Inspiron™ 1520 Laptop for $800 after instant savings. The 1520 is as all things Dell configurable. The default configuration includes a trendy color, but you can save $25 if you instead opt for the jet black option. It is powered by an Intel Pentium Dual Core T2330 (1.6GHz/533Mhz FSB/1MB cache), a 15.4" widescreen display, 2gb DDR2 memory, 250gb hard disk drive, dvd burner, wireless LAN, built-in webcam, 6-cell battery, and the usual assortment of features at this price level. Oh and something else that may be music to the ears of Vista Haters: It ships with Windows XP!

Meanwhile, its bigger brother, the Inspiron™ 1720 Laptop is offered at $1000 after instant savings.

The 1720 is configurable to your liking, but the default configuration presented comes in Jet Black, and is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo T5450 (1.66GHz/667Mhz FSB/2MB cache). It has the "dreaded" Windows Vista Home Premium Edition. Fans of large displays will be thrilled since it uses a 17" widescreen display (1440 x 900) and an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100. Memory-wise it has 2GB DDR2, and a 250GB SATA Hard disk Drive spinning at 5400RPM. Obviously it has a dvd burner, the Dell Wireless 1505 Wireless-N Mini-card, but also built-in Bluetooth capability (2.0 EDR). Viva Bluebooth! Webcam fans please don't cry, this laptop does not have a Webcam Option. As if! It is energized by a 85Whr 9-cell Lithium Ion Battery.
