Dell Inspiron M501R packs new AMD Phenom II X4 CPU; gets Core i3/i5 13R, 14R, 15R & 17R siblings

Dell have outed a new range of Inspiron notebooks, the 13R, 14R, 15R, 17R and M501R, each offering greater customisation potential than their non-R siblings.  While Intel's Core i3 and i5 CPUs serve most of the new models, the Dell Inspiron M501R is perhaps more interesting since it marks the debut of AMD's new Phenom II X4 mobile processor, codenamed Champlain, and previously only expected sometime in May 2010.  There's still no sign of an official press release from AMD themselves about the chip.

Toshiba Tecra M11 gets Core i3/i5 from $879
