Dell Inspiron IM5030-874B3D Laptop with AMD Athlon II X2 Processor

This Inspiron is powered by the AMD Athlon II X2 P360 processor.  This is a dual-core, 64-bit processor running at 2.3 GHz.  This processor has 1MB of L2 cache and uses a small 25W.  This system comes with 3GB of DDR3 memory and can support up to 6GB.

The display is a 15.6″ LED high-definition display with TrueLife technology and a resolution of 1366×768.  That’s a 16:9 aspect ratio, and enough resolution to support 720p HD content natively.  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 get a 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.  Not exactly the fastest or largest hard drive in laptops these days, but it should be sufficient for most people.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  You also get a 3-in-1 media reader that supports Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC) and Memory Stick formats.

For networking you get an integrated 10/100 network card for your wired networking needs. On the wireless side you can use the built-in Atheros wireless networking mini card for leeching off the Starbucks Wi-Fi.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port,  1 headphone out and 1 microphone in port.  This Inspiron comes with integrated audio and built-in speakers.  It does have a built-in webcam and microphone for easy video chatting on Skype.

This laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.  The other software installed include Microsoft Office Starter 2010.

The laptop measures 14.9″ x 9.6″ x 1.6″ and weighs 5.6 pounds.  It comes with a 6-cell Lithium ion battery pack that provides up to 3 hours and 57 minutes of unplugged power.

You can find the Dell Inspiron IM5030-874B3D laptop for around $430.
