Planing to buy a new laptop

Published on Saturday, July 7, 2007

Dell announced the availability of the new Inspiron 1720 line in India. The new Inspiron is built on Intel “Santa Rosa” notebook platform and is a budget-friendly, desktop-replacement. I was looking at upgrading my laptop and thought this is a nice time to do it.

The specification that I was looking at is as follows:
  • Intel® Core™ 2 Duo T7300 (2.0GHz/800Mhz FSB/4MB cache)
  • Windows Vista(TM) Business
  • Glossy widescreen 17.0 inch display (1920 x 1200)  => I really like this :-)
  • 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® Go 8600M GT
  • 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 at 667MHz  => The platform supports up to 800Mhz FSB, it is a shame the memory is this slow ;)
  • 160GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM)  => There is provision for an additional SATA HDD, but no RAID :(
  • CD / DVD writer (DVD+/-RW Drive)
  • Integrated 2.0 Megapixel Webcam
