[CES 2013] One of the major pet peeves about using a laptop to work on the go is the fact that you can’t go long without plugging it into a power socket. Dell’s answer to this problem has been its Inspiron R laptop series: laptops with impressive battery life. Well, it looks like the company has decided to upgrade them for this year. While still maintaining its optical drive, Dell has managed to reduce the size of the Inspiron R to almost 1” thick, a huge difference from last year’s model.
What else is new? We’ve now got the option to purchase the Inspiron R with a touchscreen – which makes sense, since it’ll be running on Windows 8. However, for those who don’t want to spend the extra money, the extra large trackpad should do the job. The Inspiron R can also be powered by a variety of Intel processors (Celeron, Core etc) and even optional discrete graphics for those who want to game. The variety of customizable features and display sizes means there’s bound to be something for everyone.
No word on pricing or a release date at this time of writing, but expect to find out more in the near future.
