£341.10 Dell Inspiron 17R laptop: high resolution for an affordable price

Newly-privatized Dell is selling a new version of its popular Inspiron 17R laptop for £379 including delivery, a price that goes down by 10 per cent to £341.10 when you type in ZTWB5?M9G0FNMF at checkout.

Inside the laptop is an Intel Core i3-3227U processor based on Ivy Bridge architecture and clocked at 1.9GHz with two cores plus 3MB cache.

Also on the spec sheet are 4GB of RAM, a massive 1TB hard disk drive spinning at 5400RPM, a DVD writer, Intel HD Graphics 4000 video subsystem, a 4-cell battery, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wi-Fi.

Perhaps more interesting is the fact that this laptop also comes with a 17in display that has a resolution of 1,600 x 900 pixel, 37 per cent more than the average resolution usually found on these screens.

As expected, the Inspiron 17R – which weighs a mere 2.64Kg - runs on Windows 8, comes with McAfee SecurityCenter (15 month subscription), has one HDMI, VGA and Ethernet ports as well as three USB connectors.

Dell is also selling a number of other similar laptops with varying specifications (different processors and hard disk drives), all with the same high resolution screen, for as little as £329.
