Today, Dell announced that movie buffs can pick up the Inspiron 1525 with optional Blu-ray disc playback for under a $1,000 or $879 to be more precise. The award-winning Inspiron 1525 laptop features a 15.4-inch high definition wide aspect display with 720p resolution, various options of Intel Core 2 processors, up to 4GB of DDR2 667MHz memory, up to 250GB of disk space, Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics, and more. It also includes an HDMI port for easy connectivity to high resolution displays and HDTVs. The Blu-ray player disc drive is fully backwards compatible, and will play as well as burn traditional DVDs and CDs. Consumers can also chose a Blu-ray DL burner drive, but this will add $480 to the overall price of the laptop. The Inspiron 1525 laptop with Blu-ray is available today in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Here's a link to Dell's Online store where you can customize and purchase the Inspiron 1525 laptop.
