The Inspiron 1525 was supposed to hit sometime in "mid-December," and although that didn't happen, it looks like it still managed to squeak into the oh-oh-seven -- Dell's Australian site just put up a bunch of pages detailing the new machine. The 15.4-inch machine doesn't come packing a ton of surprises -- 2GHz T7250 Core 2 Duo, X3100 integrated graphics, 2GB of RAM, 160GB or storage, and WiFi -- but it's at least kinda cheap, at AU$1399 ($1228). The site lists an Australian ship date of January 9th, so we'd imagine we'll be seeing these hit the States relatively soon. Just don't tell anyone who scored a 1520 for Christmas, dig?
