This pink laptop features the AMD Athlon II P320 processor.  This is a 64-bit dual-core processor running at 2.1 GHz.  It has 1 MB of L2 cache and uses only 25W.  The maximum CPU bandwidth is 17 GB/s.  This laptop also features VISION Technology by AMD.  The laptop comes with 3GB of DDR3 memory and can be expanded to 8GB.

The display on this laptop is a 15.6″ WLED high-definition widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768.  The screen is driven by the AMD M880G Chipset with ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 4250 graphics with 256MB-1405 MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory means the system may slow down during graphically intense operations like games.

For storage you can use the 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM. That should be enough space for your music, photos, games and more. The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive. Basically your plain vanilla optical drive.  The 7-in-1 media reader supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, MultiMediaCard, MultiMediaCard Plus, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD-Picture Card formats.

For networking you can use the built-in 10/100 wired Ethernet adapter by plugging in to the RJ-45 connector.  For wireless connect with the built-in Dell 1501N wireless networking half-mini card (802.11b/g/n) adapter.  Sit at Starbucks and surf while others wait for a table.  This laptop does not have Bluetooth support.

External ports include 4 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in jacks.  The 4 USB ports are nice to have for all your peripherals you want to connect like your iPod or inkjet printer.

The laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, which is the standard for laptop computers these days.  Other software includes a bunch of crapware from Dell.

The laptop measures 10.3″x14.8″x1.25″ and it weighs 5.9 pounds. The 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack provides up to 4 hours of battery life.  And of course this laptop has a pink case. Laptops with similar specs are available in blue and green as well.

You can find the pink Dell Inspiron IM501R-1212LPK laptop for around $550.
