Powerful design and flexibility
Desk not required: Inspiron 17R performs like a desktop PC, but is only around 1" thin. Which makes it a lot easier to curl up with on the couch. Style for miles: Brushed-aluminum finish and rounded corners – you’ll feel more sophisticated just looking at it. Stay powered up wherever: A 65WHr 6-cell battery means more flexibility and fun. Because the best places to work aren’t always near an outlet.
Skip the crowds and pop a movie into your tray-load optical drive instead. This vast 17.3” HD+ Truelife screen and studio-quality sound from Waves MaxxAudio 4.0 put you right in the middle of the action. Or connect to your HDTV via HDMI for an even more cinematic adventure.
Sharp images: Photos, videos, movies and other images pop on a 17.3" HD+ Truelife 1600 x 900 display in 900p.
A bigger view: Make the Inspiron 17R the power behind your home theater with an HDMI 1.4 connection to an HDTV or HD monitor.
Outstanding sound: From crisp highs to warm lows, MaxxAudio 4 from Waves, recipient of a Technical GRAMMY Award, gives you total control over your frequency response.
