Dell Inc. has announced the addition of a Blu-ray drive to an Inspiron laptop model that sells for less than $1,000. The Dell Inspiron 1525 with optional Blu-ray disc playback is now available starting at $879.

The Inspiron 1525 features a 15.4-inch high-definition, wide-aspect display with 720p resolution. It also includes an HDMI port for easy connectivity to high-resolution displays and HDTVs.

The Blu-ray player disc drive is fully backwards compatible and will play as well as burn traditional DVDs and CDs. Consumers can also chose a Blu-ray burner drive to back up and store important files like digital photos, videos, financial records, etc.

Dell Inspiron 1525 laptops with Blu-ray drives incorporate Broadcom's Media PC technology that allows PCs with integrated graphics to play high-definition video. The high-definition video playback is enabled through a built-in dedicated accelerator located in a mini-card slot.
