The Inspiron 17 has a whole new look that is sure to please the eye.
Fine tuned design The new sleek design of the Inspiron 17 is slimmer and lighter than its predecessors. With a preliminary starting weight of 6.35lbs* with a 6-cell battery and a mere 1.31" thin, it’s easy to carry from room to room.
Sleek details Upon opening the Inspiron 17, your eyes will be immediately drawn to the brushed metal appearance of the palm rest. The keyboard’s 10-key numeric keypad makes it easy to work with applications that require data entry or directional moves.
Colorful choices Personalize every inch of your Inspiron 17. Choose from 3 glossy color options: Obsidian Black, Ice Blue and Promise Pink. With every purchase of a Promise Pink Inspiron 17 laptop, Dell will donate $5.00 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® , one of the world’s largest nonprofit breast cancer organizations. Simply pick your color or design to match your personal style.
Don’t let the screen fool you — the Inspiron 17 is no desktop. From the display to the entertainment features, the Inspiron 17 packs desktop performance inside a clean portable design. So go ahead and enjoy its mobile features, like staying connected even when you’re only moving from room to room.
