Dell to sell sub-$1,000 BR notebook

Dell is selling the Inspiron 1525 for a mere $879 — a little more than what a nicer BR player currently costs. The 1525 has a 15.4-inch screen with 720p resolution and an HDMI port. The improved 1525, which starts at about $500, is one of Dell’s better selling low- to mid-tier consumer laptops.
