It is being reported that computer giant Dell has unvailed a new Blue-Ray laptop for under 900 dollars.
Dell is one of the world’s biggest suppliers of custom made computers, and is jumping on Sony’s band wagon offering a Blue-Ray drive on their Inspiron 1525 notebook.
“Dell has been a backer of Blu-ray from the beginning, and we’ve actually been offering Blu-ray notebooks for close to 18 months now,” said Dell spokeswoman
Anne Camden. “The big news now is we are actually able to offer it at a price that puts it at a mainstream user’s reach.”
The new disc drive is fully compatible with various types of software, and has the ability to play and burn traditional DVDs.
“Blu-ray is definitely moving into the mainstream,” Camden said. “If somebody is thinking of investing in a Blu-ray library, now’s the time because not only are they able to watch it at home but they can leverage that library and take it on the road, and it’s affordable to do.”
Dell is also offering consumers the opportunity to purchase a Blue-Ray burner drive as an additional way of backing up files such as photos.
The laptop itself comes with a 15.4-inch high definition wide aspect display with 720p resolution and an HDMI port for easy connectivity to high-resolution displays and HDTVs.
