Dell unveils new Inspiron Windows 8 hardware at Computex
Dell has today announced an all-in-one PC and two new 2-in-1 Inspiron notebooks that feature 360 degree swivelling displays to rotate between laptop, easel, tent and tablet modes. The new notebooks are designed for those who actively switch between working on the keyboard to hitting up some gaming on a tablet, perfect for performing multiple tasks usually carried out by separate products.
The Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 sports an 11-inch touch screen with 500GB internal storage and has over 8 hours worth of battery to power an Intel Pentium quad-core processor. Audio improvements from Waves MAXXAudio technology are included to further enhance the user experience. It's a solid device, which will be available starting June 19th at $449.99.
Dell also announced the Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1, which is a considerable step up from the more affordable sibling. The PC comes with an 13.3-inch touch screen with a full HD resolution. Moving up to the Intel Core processor family, upgrades also include a backlit keyboard and a built-in passive stylus, designed for noting things down in OneNote. The Inspiron 13 7000 will be available later this year in September.
The last Inspiron device in this announcement is the 20 3000 all-in-one PC, which is a radically thin and lightweight design with an adjustable stand for multiple viewing experiences. It has a 19.5-inch HD display, Intel Pentium quad-core processor and premium speakers (including sub-woofer). The PC will be available from July 1 in the US for $349.99 (available now in select countries).
On a side note, Dell is also set to launch new 27-inch, 23-inch and 21.5-inch Dell UltraSharp monitors. They're all Full HD and are optimized for Microsoft Lync with the built-in 2 MP camera microphone combo. They will all be available from June 3rd on Dell's online store, starting at $449.99 for the 27-inch model, $299.99 for the 23-inch and $269.99 for the 21.5-inch variant.
