Dell Announces New XPS, Inspiron Notebooks

It also announced a number of key notebooks to flesh out its large lineup which leads sales in the U.S.

First up is the Dell Inspiron 15, Dell's new answer to consumers seeking a budget laptop. The notebook features a 15.6" display and a 16:9 aspect ratio (1366 x 768 pixels), handy for playing movies on the go.
