Dell: Dell introduces Inspiron M501R with quad-core AMD chip

The newbie from Dell is also accompanied by the Inspiron M5030 albeit with lower specs

Dell Computers is talking business again, this time with the sparkling new Inspiron M501R with a quad-core AMD Phenom II N930. And hey, there’s more, the Inspiron M5030 with a triple-core AMD Phenom II P320 is on sale now too.  Well the 15.6-inch Inspiron M5030, which weighs 5.83 pounds (equivalent to about 2.64kg) comes loaded with AMD’s 880G chipset coupled with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 integrated graphics card that will give you high quality visual experience and also a 1.3 Megapixel camera for those perfect web shots. Comparatively, the Inspiron M501R however scores better with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 550v graphics chip (for which there is 1GB  of dedicated memory) with a similar 1.3 Megapixel camera.

Features which are common to both models include identical plug in ports that of eSATA, HDMI, and a 7-in-1 card reader. Not to forget the 6-cell battery and an essential DVD burner. Also the software pre-loaded are similar with the Windows Home Premium 64-bit OS and the device can be fitted with internal storage of up to 8GB DDR3 RAM, and both come with 4GB in standard trim.

Dell has not disappointed on the colour aspect either, with a refreshing dash of colour options available including that of Obsidian Black, Peacock Blue, Lotus Pink or Tomato Red to take a pick from. Starting at $750 for the base configuration, the Dell laptop can be yours for no additional shipping cost.
