The Dell Inspiron 15R can be considered as  the premium version of the Inspiron 15. It is smaller than the 17.3'' Inspiron 17R but retains the same array of ports and components. With more options in the form of graphics cards, memory and wifi card. In addition to the extra options, an eSATA/USB combo port have to added in place of an USB 2.0 port (now 3X USB2.0). With these small revisions the Inpsiron 15R is thicker and the weight of the Inspiron 15R has increased by 0.4lbs over the Inspiron 15. Windows 7 Home basic and Windows 7 Ultimate (both 64-bit) have been added to the list along side the existing Windows 7 Home Premium and Professional. Many features remains the same with the 720p HD WLED display, Blu-Ray drive option and two 2 W speakers. The Inspiron 15R offers more flexibility than the Inspiron 15 in terms of configurations. None the less, this 15.6'' notebook is still aimed at students and buyers with basic home and office needs.
