The Dell Inspiron 13R replaces the Inspiron 13. It is available with Intel Core i3 and i5 processors which is a considerable uprgade over the previous Core 2 Duo processors. Along with the new processors, the Intel GMA X3100 is replaced by Intel HD graphics with an optional ATi HD5470 dedicated graphics card upgrade. The screen has also changed from 16:10 format to 16:9 with an upgrade to a 720p WLED display. The 4 pin firewire port have been removed, instead a HDMI output and a eSATA/USB combo port have been added. Both Dell and Intel WiFi card options are still available but the 4 cell and 9 cell battery previously available to the Inspiron 13 have been removed and the 13R is left with only the 6 cell option. The 8 in 1 media card reader have also been reduced to a 7 in 1 media card reader. Fortunately the with all these losses in features, the weight and thickness of the 13R have been reduced, from 4.9lbs to 4.22lbs. Overall the 13R has had many changes some more welcoming than others. It has slimmed down to match the weight and size of it's competitions.
