Dell's Inspiron 15 7559 gets new entry-level model with 256GB SSD for $809

Dell has outed a new configuration for its gaming-centric Inspiron 15 7559 that addresses the one big complaint we had about the laptop in our review: loading times. With this new entry-level configuration, Dell has supplanted the 5400 rpm 1TB hard drive that comes in the base model with a 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD), which should mean much faster speeds and significantly faster loading times.

While the base model we reviewed comes in at $799, Dell says that the new configuration comes in at just $50 more at $849. However, interested buyers can check out Amazon, where the retailer is selling the new configuration for just $809.

Aside from the new SSD, the rest of the laptop's specs remain the same as the base model, including 8GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics card. For your money, you'll also get a 2.3GHz Intel i5 processor and a 15.6-inch FHD display.

Are you planning to pick up the Inspiron 15 7559 now that Dell has bumped up the specs at the entry-level? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
