Handle tasks easily and stay connected with the reliable, budget-friendly Dell Inspiron i15N (model i15N-1294BK), which provides solid performance as well as easy access to music, photos and videos with Dell Stage software.
It's powered by a second-generation Intel Core i3 dual-core processor, which provides breakthrough digital media management, content creation, and 3D gaming capabilities.
You'll appreciate the Inspiron 15's simple styling and roomy chiclet keyboard. The redesigned hinge gives the illusion the display is "floating" above the keyboard when open, and it provides an natural area to hold when the system is closed.
Immerse yourself in movies, online video and casual games on the 15.6-inch widescreen HD display, and video chat with friends using the built-in webcam and microphone. The Inspiron 15N comes complete with an HDMI port, so you can connect to an HDTV and watch HD movies for big-screen high-definition fun.
You also get Dell's innovative Stage software, which provides a one-stop entertainment hub. Download movies, play games, listen to your favorite songs, and stream radio stations with RadioTime. Connect with friends on social networks, and view their Facebook and Flickr photos together in a real-time photo stream (learn more below).
It comes pre-installed with the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium operating system. You'll also experience new ways to deliver your best work with Office Starter 2010 (learn more below).
