New Inspiron Desktops, Widescreen Displays

Today, we're launching four desktop models overall: two Intel-based ones and two AMD systems. The Inspiron 530 and 531 are the larger minitower versions. The 530 supports a variety of Intel processors up to the Core 2 Duo, and the 531 supports several AMD processors up to Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processors.

Both support optional wireless 802.11g internal network cards. Bluetooth 2.0 technology is integrated into the optional 13-in-1 card reader. With these add-ons, customers can use a wireless keyboard, mouse, have wireless Internet access and use other wireless devices.

Both support the optional 256MB GeForce 8600 GT from NVIDIA, dual hard drives up to 1TB total, and the optional ATI Theater 650 Pro analog/digital TV tuner cards. With all this hardware, customers can watch and record hours of HDTV content.

The Inspiron 530s and the 531s are the slim tower chassis versions of the desktop. Like their bigger counterparts, the 530s supports the same Intel processors while the 531s supports the same AMD processors. They both support the dual hard drives up to 1TB total, and lots of optional  hardware like ATI Theater 650 Pro analog/digital TV tuner, internal 802.11g network cards, and integrated Bluetooth 2.0.

In this video Mary Miller gives a good overview of the overall features that these two form factors provide.

For gamers, enthusiasts and photographer types, today we're now offering a new version of the 2407WFP.
