The notebook is being pegged by Dell as en entry level gaming notebook, and while 4K touch is available as an option, the standard display is a still pretty impressive looking 1080p Full HD panel.
Despite not being part of the flagship XPS range of products, the new Inspiron 15 7000 Series laptops still offer a premium experience. The 2-in-1 offers the convertible tablet mode along with a tent mode, and Dell is expecting success for this in North America in particular. Here's what makes it tick.
The notebook is boasting some higher end hardware, with the latest Intel quad-core i7H-Series CPU on offer as well as discrete graphics from NVIDIA to partner that 4K display you can specify. The disappointment here is that right now, Dell only plans to sell this in China. It'll be on sale there from August for RMB5999, and it comes in a pretty awesome shade of red.
The 2-in-1 will be on sale from June 23 in the U.S. starting at $549. It doesn't have the option for a 4K display and the internals are a little more reserved, but it''s still a great looking device for someone looking for a larger 2-in-1.
