PC maker Dell released another model to its affordable laptop line, the Dell Inspiron I15RV-1428BLK. Priced around USD350, the new 15.6 inch model sports a new thin design measuring 1” and is powered by the latest Intel Pentium ultra-low voltage processor, the Pentium 2117U which of course has lower power consumption than the full-voltage counterparts. Performance-wise, it is similar to the B-series Pentium (full voltage) models. The Inspiron series competes directly against the HP Pavilion Sleekbook which comes with either Intel or AMD processors.

The laptop comes equipped with 4GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive, DVD burner, 1MP web camera, stereo speakers, four UBS ports, Wi-Fi, Ethernet LAN, an 8-in-1 media card reader and Bluetooth 4.0, which is rather uncommon for a budget laptop. The 15.6 inch display has a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. The old VGA video connector has been ditched in favor of a HDMI port. The laptop body is made black plastics with textured matte finish. This is accompanied by a chiclet keyboard and a spacious trackpad.
