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 :(
