Dell has used Computex to outline some new additions and alterations to its extensive notebook line. The new Inspiron 5000 series is a mid-range collection that covers a wide array of display sizes, the Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 is a convertible notebook that can work as a tablet, and the currently-available 3000 series will get a minor upgrade, using Intel's Braswell-based processors.
A new series in the Inspiron line of laptops and all-in-one PCs has been announced by Dell. The new series offers what the company calls "mainstream performance" at prices starting as low as $450. Laptops in the new line feature Full HD touch displays in the 15- and 17-inch models, backlit keyboards and brushed aluminum lids. The new all-in-one PCs feature a thinner design without cutting back on processing power. All of the models have 20 GB of Dropbox cloud storage space included with the purchase as well.
Dell has revealed updated versions of its Inspiron notebook product line at CES. Customers in the United States, Canada, and other countries will be able to buy notebooks that, following feedback from users, have higher battery capacities and ultra-low voltage versions of Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, requiring half the power of those used in Inspiron notebooks last year.
The revamped Dell Inspiron 15R and 17R models with Intel third-generation Core processors that first surfaced in Australia in May are now up for sale in the US. In addition to the revised internals, Dell has introduced a Special Edition model in both ranges that incorporates a special anodized aluminum Stealth Black honeycomb finish with matching palm rest. Both models also come preinstalled with Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premier Elements as well.
This morning, Dell introduced its expanded Inspiron notebook line, catering to graduation gifts and the back-to-school buying season. Three different Inspiron lines have been refreshed. The Inspiron z, R, and R Special Editions have been renovated, catering to the home and education-minded customers. All of the new models are available at retail on June 19.
Dell is refreshing its all-in-one PC offerings with the introduction of the XPS One 27, Inspiron One 23 and Inspiron One 20. The new XPS becomes Dell's largest all-in-one machine and leans towards more high-end components, while both Inspirons are aimed at more budget-conscious family users wanting to save desktop space.
Dell’s Ivy Bridge upgrades continue to roll out with a Special Edition version of its Inspiron 15R surfacing on the company’s Australian website. The revised notebook is loaded with an Intel third-generation Core i7 ‘Ivy Bridge’ processor, specifically the i7-3612QM clocked at 2.10GHz wedded to an HM77 chipset. It also comes with an optional 15.6-inch 1080p display and a discrete AMD Radeon HD 7730M GPU with 2GB of VRAM. The namesake feature is its anodized aluminum Stealth Black honeycomb finish.
Dell's namesake, CEO Michael Dell, made a symbolic statement at an enterprise launch event that his company wasn't really a PC builder. He argued to a San Francisco audience including Forbes that his company, which started off making custom PCs, was "not really a PC company" and instead that it was an "end-to-end IT company that really understands the needs of its customers." As an illustration of this, the introductions were focused not just on servers of all sizes but 10Gbps Ethernet equipment and networked storage.
Dell has formally but quietly backed out of the netbook category. A search for netbooks like the Mini 10 gives users a warning that the Mini line is "no longer available." In return, buyers are told to pick the much larger Inspiron 14R.
Dell chose Thursday to remake its most important small notebooks. The 14-inch Inspiron 14z and 13.3-inch Inspiron 13z together slim down compared to Dell's usual and measure just slightly under an inch thick. Some of the size reduction comes from a move to higher-quality parts: they now use aluminum lids and palm rests instead of the plastic common to many notebooks in their class.
