Dell prepping new 15″ laptops

Dell sure has been busting out a whole lot of new products lately and if recent rumors offer any indication, that trend is set to continue well into December. According to the latest leaked info, Dell will be replacing its Inspiron 1520 and 1521 lappies next month with two new models: the 1525 and 1526. These 15.4 inch, 6.6 pound machines will be aimed squarely at the low-end consumer/SMB market–but that doesn’t mean that Dell has totally skimped in the specs department. The 1525 will sport Intel’s Santa Rosa while the 1526 will be based on an AMD/ATI combo; both machines will support up to 4GB of RAM, your choice of display panels (WXGA/WXGA+/WSXGA+), WiFi, a SATA drive of your choosing, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, optional WWAN connectivity and even a Blu-ray reader (available in the 1525 only). As far as an OS is concerned, these will apparently ship with either Vista or Ubuntu Linux and it’s believed that you might even be able to customize the color of the machine’s lid (as we’ve seen on some other Inspirons). If you’ve been mulling an Inspiron 1520/1521 purchase, you might want to wait until mid-December, when these new machines are rumored to ship.
