Dell InspironThose tricky people over at Engadget have gotten their digital hands on the next crop of Dell Inspirons, and it's safe to say that thin is in.

The Dell Inspiron 1435, 1535 and 1735 mid-range consumer laptops seem to share the same basic design and have, as Dell likes to say is its calling card, a wealth of customization options both aesthetic and technical. All three laptops taper in thickness from 1-inch to 1.5 inches. Notable specs are as follows:

  • Slot-loading drives, with a Blu-ray option;
  • Core 2 Duo T5850 2.16GHz processors;
  • 3G across the lineup.

The 'Gadg reports that the 1435 isn't due until October, but the 1735 is coming on June 9 and the 1535 on May 26th. All I know is, as a PC user, I can't wait to find something to replace my getting-long-in-the-tooth 700m.

Stay tuned.
