Dell Inspiron Desktop 2009
Dell on mid-Monday launcheed a major update to the look of its Inspiron desktops. The new models have sleeker redesigns and come in 8 solid colors for both slimline and regular mini-tower versions. The Texas PC creator also promises a wide spread between low-cost and mid-range systems ranging from either an AMD Sempron or Intel Celeron starter up to quad-core Phenom X4 and Core 2 Quad chips.
While full specifications aren't yet available, Dell vows support for as much as 8GB of memory on either model and maximum storage of either 750GB on the slim systems or 1TB on the fuller models. Blu-ray will be an option for optical storage, and users can trade up to dedicated ATI Radeon HD video from the stock integrated hardware.
Dell anticipates releasing the new Inspirons later in the spring and should price the systems from $299.
