Who ever said Dell's Inspiron laptops couldn't look sexy? The guys at Engadget have unleashed several pictures of a new range of notebooks from Dell's low-end consumer line, and the machines have a distinct aesthetic flair reminiscent of the pricier XPS-series machines.
According to one of the pictures that looks like a presentation slide from Dell, the 15" Inspiron 1535 is coming on May 26, while the 17" Inspiron 1735 will follow on June 9. The smallest of the batch—the 14" Inspiron 1535—has been delayed until October. Engadget says all three systems will be 1" to 1.5" thick with slot-loading drives and processors as fast as a 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo T5850. Dell will reportedly offer Blu-ray and 3G WAN connectivity as options, as well.
Dell seems to have borrowed some design elements from its pricier XPS M1330 and XPS M1530 notebooks. The sides of the machines look quite similar, with a large hinge that covers the entire rear end of the laptops and a low-profile slot-loading drive. Dell will offer a wealth of "personalization" options, too, such as different back and palm rest designs and colors.
