Of course, the new PC performs great with new 2nd generation “Sandybridge” Core processors under the hood, USB 3.0 and up to 8GB of memory, but what’s really amazing is the new switchable lid option which gives the SWITCH lineup its name.  Just pop off the lid whenever you feel like a change and swap it out with one of 25 eye-catching colors and designs, including some that were designed by OPI, Threadless, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation and (PRODUCT) Red

The new Inspiron R SWITCH collection is available in 14, 15 and 17 inch models, all with outstanding battery life (up to 13 hours with the 9 cell battery) and brilliant HD displays.  You can get yours starting today from
