In addition to its super affordable Venue 7 and 8 Android tablets, Dell also made official a few other devices worth our attention. Among them are the Inspiron 7000 Series and the Inspiron 3000 Series 2-in-1 laptops that are able to fold into tablets. Unlike the Venue tablets which are decidedly affordable entry-level offerings, the 7000 Series is aimed at more demanding users.
Dell Inspiron 7000 and 3000 Series 2-in-1
The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 is a Windows 8.1 laptop that can double as tablet. The device features a 13.3-inch a 10-finger capacitive touchscreen display with resolution of up to Full HD (1920 x 1080) and is powered by 4th generation Intel Haswell Core processor available in several configurations. The laptop comes with 20 GB of free Dropbox storage as standard and support for passive stylus.
The laptop’s standout feature is its keyboard which has hinges that can rotate 360-degrees. This way you can use the keyboard as a kickstand, stand it in a tent position or fold all the way down and use the laptop as a regular tablet. The laptop-tablet hybrid is scheduled to hit the market later on in September. The price hasn’t disclosed yet.
Along with the Inspiron 7000 2-in-1, Dell also announced a smaller Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 laptop that packs an 11-inch display, an Intel Pentium quad-core processor and up to 500 GB of storage space. According to Dell, the device offers a battery life of up to 8 hours which is pretty impressive for a laptop-tablet convertible. The Inspiron 11 3000 will be available later this month, on the 19th, for a price of $ $449.99.
Like the Venue tablets, both the 7000 Series and 3000 Series port Waves MAXXAudio technology for superb audio experience.
