Dell 2009 Inspiron On Sale
Dell today lived up to promises and put its new-look Inspiron desktops on sale today in the US. Now called the Inspiron 537 and 537s, the finished systems are distinguished by their option of several colors and range in speed from Celeron through Core 2 Quad processors for Intel systems and Semprons through Phenom X4 processors for AMD. They can all have up to 8GB of RAM as well as dedicated ATI Radeon HD video, though storage varies slightly with a slimline tower limited to a 750GB drive while the larger mini-tower holds up to 1TB.
Both sizes of desktop start at $299 with a 2.2GHz Celeron, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive and (on Intel models) GMA X4500 video. Systems ordered today should ship late this month.
