"Dell has also launched Inspiron 11 3000 and 5000 series convertibles, and two regular notebooks in the Inspiron 5000 series"


ASUS launched a bunch of new laptops and convertibles at its press event at Computex in Taipei yesterday. Now Dell has launched a slew of new laptops and convertibles at the same event. The most interesting device in its lineup is the Inspiron 17 7000, which is the world's first 17-inch 2-in-1 laptop. The convertible comes with an infrared camera to let you login into Windows 10 via facial recognition using the Windows Hello feature.

The Dell Inspiron 17 7000 convertible sports a huge 17-inch full HD display and is powered by sixth-gen Intel Core processors.

Its 360-degree rotatable hinge allows it to be used in four modes - tablet, laptop, tent and stand. The notebook offers a standard backlit keyboard, a standard precision touchpad, MaxxAudio Pro audio, Wi-Fi, an optional USB Type-C adapter that has ports for HDMI and VGA display connections, and a USB 3.0 port. The new Inspiron 7000 convertible is also available in 13-inch and 15-inch screen variants.


Dell has also launched two more convertibles in the Inspiron 11 3000 and Inspiron 5000 series. In addition, the company has launched two regular Inspiron 5000 series notebooks. The Inspiron 11 3000 series convertible offers an 11.6-inch HD display, an Intel Core M3 processor, Windows 10, a microSD card port, and USB 3.0 ports.

The Dell Inspiron 5000 series convertibles come in 13-inch and 15-inch variants. They offer infrared cameras for facial recognition, backlit keyboards, Windows 10, and up to 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM. The regular Inspiron 5000 series notebooks come in 15-inch and 17-inch variants. They offer sixth-gen Intel Core i7 processors, Windows 10, up to 16GB of RAM, and multiple colour options like Midnight Blue, Bali Blue, Fog Night or Tango Red. The 15-inch Inspiron 5000 notebook also gets an infrared camera for facial recognition.

The Dell Inspiron 7000 series convertibles will be available starting at $749. The Inspiron 11 3000 convertible is priced competitively at $249, while the Inspiron 5000 2-in-1's price start at $529.
