Dell Inspiron R Line Gets Core i3/i5 and Intel WiDi

This past weekend Dell announced that its new Inspiron R laptops are making their way to the U.S. in time for back-to-school shopping. Already available in other parts of the world, the Inspiron R comes in 14-, 15-, and 17-inch flavors and packs options for Intel's Core i3 or i5 mobile CPUs; HD displays across the board; up to 1GB for ATI graphics; up to 8GB of DDR3; up to 640GB of HDD storage; integrated webcam; and a dedicated number pad on the 15- and 17-inch models.

Available in Mars Black, Peacock Blue, Tomato Red or Lotus Pink, pricing starts at $449 (available through Fry's from June 25), but you can expect that to jump quite a bit once you start customizing for better specs.

    Need more detail on the $449. Let me guess:
    1GB RAM, 160GB HDD.

    Not good.

    WiDi is short for wireless display. You can get Wi-Fi routers that can hook up to an HDTV to display your desktop.
