The good news for those shopping about for a laptop with a discrete graphics card is that Dell has recently announced the Inspiron R Special Edition laptops. Available as either the 15R or the 17R, both models will feature the Wave MaxxAudio 4 audio suite and will come with Skullcandy speakers. The 15R Special Edition model will sport an AMD Radeon GPU under its hood while the 17R will come with an NVIDIA GPU instead, so depending on your budget and your needs, Dell appears to have you covered.
If looks matter to you, the Inspiron R Special Edition will sport a durable anodized aluminum exterior in Stealth Black, which we have to admit that after seeing it, gives off a rather menacing but sleek exterior. Both models will feature Full HD 1920×1080 displays, Blu-ray disc options, backlit keys and optional mSATA SSD devices with Intel Rapid Start Technology which should help with faster boot and sleep resume times. The 17R Special Edition model will also come with the option of going for a Full HD 3D display. For those interested, both the 15R and 17R Special Edition laptops will be available in both US and Canadian markets come June 19th with the former priced at $899.99, while the 17R will be priced at $1,099.99 ($1,299.99 for the 3D version).
