, that's a $50 drop from yesterday's mention and the lowest price we've seen for any Inspiron 15R notebook with an Ivy Bridge Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM. (For further comparison, we saw a similar Inspiron 15R in August for the same price, however that system had less RAM and half the hard drive capacity.) Sales tax is added where applicable. It features an Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz Ivy Bridge dual-core processor, 15.6" 1366x768 LED-backlit widescreen LCD, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, webcam, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
