Dell updates entry-level notebook

The Inspiron 1150 lets customers step up to a faster processor and a larger screen versus its predecessor.

Dell on Tuesday unveiled the Inspiron 1150, an updated version of its low-price notebook for consumers. The portable PC, which starts at $799, comes with built-in Wi-Fi wireless networking and offers customers the ability to step up to a faster processor and a larger screen versus its predecessor, the Inspiron 1100.

The most basic version of the Inspiron 1150 will come with a 14.1-inch screen, a 2.4GHz Intel Celeron processor, 256MB of RAM, a DVD-ROM drive and a 20GB hard drive. However, Dell will offer customers the ability to upgrade to a 15-inch screen, add a Pentium 4 running as fast as 2.66GHz, include a CD burner, and increase memory and hard drive sizes to as much as 1GB of RAM and 40GB, respectively, Dell said in a statement.
