Dell's Inspiron line has never been stodgy, exactly. They're steady, workaday notebooks that you'd take to college or have kicking around the living room. And that's been just fine! The R series, though, adds a bit more flair.
The new Inspirons that Dell's announcing today don't represent much of a spec upgrade—the line's been packing Core i3/i5 since January—but with colors options like "Peacock Blue" and "Lotus Pink," it's clear that Dell wants to amp up their style quotient.
