Inspiron 1525 Shows Early

In an unexpected move, Dell's Australian branch has begun taking early orders for the Inspiron 1525, the upgrade to the 1520 model from the spring. This new version chiefly represents a boost using faster, more recent components: the stock system now jumps from 1.66GHz to 2GHz for its Core 2 Duo and makes 2GB standard where before it was only a special discount. The Dell system also marks a return to custom lid patterns with black, purple, and white designs that can replace the normal solid colors from the 1520.

The 160GB hard disk, Intel GMA X3100, and DVD burner of the earlier system carry over to the new model, which shares much of the same design. Dell sells the 15.4-inch portable at an equivalent to $1,222 with the choice of only Windows Vista as its core operating system; shipments are not expected to start until January 9th, pointing to a probable release date for North America and most other areas.
