No surprises here, but Dell is fleshing out their Core 2 Duo processor upgrades with two more Inspiron laptops, the E1505 and E1405. The cheapest of the cheap is a E1505 running a 1.66GHz T5500 processor for a mere $729 -- after the $100 instant rebate -- but speeds scale all the way up to the 2.16GHz T7400. The E1405 starts at $779 -- again, with a $100 instant rebate -- with the same range of processors. Other specs include a 60 or 120GB HDD, combo drive or DVD burner, and your pick of Intel 950 integrated graphics all the way up to a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 card with 256MB of memory. Both laptops also have an option for an 802.11n card, along with Bluetooth, and both still have a Core Duo option if you've got a hankerin' for Yonah. All configurations should be available now or soon from the Dell store.
