This laptop is powered by the Intel Core i5-460M CPU. This  is a dual-core, 64-bit processor with 4 processing threads.  The cores operating at 2.53GHz normally, but can be boosted up to 2.8GHz with TurboBoost technology.  It has 3MB of L3 cache and uses 35W.  The laptop comes with 6GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB. That’s plenty of memory for all of your multitasking needs. It uses the Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset.

The display is a 17.3″ WLED high-definition display with a resolution of 1600×900. With its 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p content, it makes a pretty good DVD-watching machine.  The screen is driven by the ATI Radeon HD 5470 graphics card with 1GB of dedicated video RAM. This chip has support for Microsoft DirectX 11 and should be able to play modern games in at least low to medium settings, so not too bad for a laptop gaming machine.

For storage you get a 640GB SerialATA (SATA) hard drive at a slow 5400RPM.  It’s a huge drive with plenty of space for all the crap you want to put on it, and trust me, you’ve got a lot.  The optical drive is one of those multi-format DVD/CD drives that reads and writes all the formats you can imaging.  It’s got a pretty nice media card reader that claims to be 7-in-1 which supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, MultiMediaCard, MultiMediaCard Plus, xD-Picture Card, Memory Stick and Memory Stick PRO formats.

You get a couple of networking options.  First, you have the disappointing 10/100 Ethernet LAN adapter which you access through the standard RJ-45 port.  Couldn’t something like this have Gigabit?  Anyway, for wireless you can use the built-in Dell Wireless 1501 networking interface(802.11b/g/n) adapter.  This laptop does not have Bluetooth support.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 half mini-card slot, 1 HDMI port, 1 headphone and 1 microphone.  You also get a built-in webcam with microphone so you can talk to grandma via video chat.

This laptop comes with the de facto laptop standard of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Dell crapware and Microsoft Office Starter 2010, which you’ve got to buy if you want to use.

This laptop measures16.5″ x 10.9″ x 0.8″ and weighs 6.7 pounds.

You can find the Dell Inspiron I17R-2587MRB laptop for around $1000.
