Two of the most popular laptops from dell are the Dell Inspiron 15R / 17R, both of which offer the same standard specs with one difference, one has 1 15-inch screen while the other has a 17-inch display. As always, Dell has some great offers on these two laptops – just do not get carried away with the number of upgrade options available to you.

Both laptops come with a Intel Core™ i3-370M as standard, which has a speed of 2.4GHz and a 3Mb Cache; also as standard is 4GB DDR3 RAM and a 500GB hard drive. However, the 15-inch model has a battery life of over 4 hours, whereas the 17-inch has just over 3.

There are four colors to choose from, they are as follows: Mars Black, Peacock Blue, Tomato Red and Promise Pink. However, be warned that choosing other colors options will cost an extra $45. I think that this is money well spent, how boring will it be just to choose black?

Now to the price, the Dell Inspiron 15R is currently on offer for $579.99; a saving of $104. The Dell Inspiron 17R is up for $649.99; a saving of $210. No one can disagree that these are great savings. For those looking for an alternative, then maybe you should consider the HP Pavilion dv6t Select Edition or the Gateway EC19C-A52C/S Laptop.

Which of the two would you choose?
