New Dell Inspiron 1420 and 1520 specials starting at $800 each

We have two new specials from Dell, on the Dell Inspiron 1420 and 1520. Good news for Dell fans. If you are not a fan of Dell, be sure to check our other posts, or check the various manufacturer categories at the bottom right column of this blog!

We start with the Dell Inspiron™ 1420 Laptop $799 after $165 instant savings. In the default configuration, the Inspiron 1420 comes in jet black. If you would like to add other colors, there is a $25 surcharge. The other color options available are pure colors, no patterns. They are the Alphine White, not to be confused with Quizno's Alpine Sammie, the Sunshine Yellow, Plaming Pink (directed by John Waters?), Spring Green (not to be confused with spinach), Ruby Red, Midnight Blue, and Espresso Brown. Yum! Does it leak caffeine? :)

Ok, silliness aside, the 1420 is powered by an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5450 (1.66GHz/667Mhz FSB/2MB cache) processor, 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz, 250GB SATA Hard Drive spinning at 5400RPM, 14.1" glossy widescreen display as the model name suggests, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100, and dvd burner.

The secondary tier features include Vista® Home Premium Intel® 3945 802.11a/g Mini-card, built-in 10/100 Network Card and Modem, 56Whr Lithium Ion Battery (6 cell). Please note that there is no option for a webcam on this laptop. Also included in the price is 1Yr In-Home Service, Parts + Labor,24x7 Phone Support.

Among the various bonus items, you get something useful perhaps: 3 GB DataSafe Online Backup for one year. Not that the other stuff are not useful :)

Then we spotlight the Inspiron™ 1520 Laptop $799 after $289 instant savings. The default setup is a midnight blue color, but you can save $25 if you switch to the more traditional Jet Black. No, this is not a heavy metal band :) The other two options without a surchage are flamingo pink and espresso brown.

Let's see what's inside this notebook! The computing power is generated by the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T5450 (1.66GHz/667Mhz FSB/2MB cache). The output is displayed on a glossy, widescreen 15.4 inch display (1280x800) powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100. Storage wise it has 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz, a 250GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM), and a dvd burner that loves both "dash" and "plus".

The secondary features the Intel® 3945 802.11a/g Mini-card, built-in 2 megapixel webcam, 56Whr Lithium Ion Battery (6 cell), 1Yr In-Home Service, Parts + Labor,24x7 Phone Support, 3 GB DataSafe Online Backup for oen year, Integrated 10/100 Network Card and Modem, Windows XP, and such. Vista Haters should be drawn to the XP option :)
