First 17″ Convertible Coming From Dell

Dell showed off a convertible PC, the Inspiron 17 7000, which appears to take cues from Lenovo’s Yoga products. It has a 360° hinge and touchscreen as standard. Available in 13″, 15″ and 17″ sizes, the product will be available in June, starting at $730. It is notable as the world’s first 17″ convertible.

The Inspiron 17 7000 runs on a sixth-generation (Skylake) processor, up to Core i7. It uses DDR4 RAM, a Geforce 940M processor and HDMI, USB (x2) and USB-C connectors. Additionally, an IR camera will be available as an option, so that users can unlock the device without a password.

13″ and 15″ convertible PCs were also added to the Inspiron 5000 series; both have Intel Core i processors, up to 16GB of RAM and 1920 x 1080 resolution. They will be launched starting at $530 in June. Ports are identical to the 17 7000 Series, although there is no USB-C.

In the traditional notebook space, Dell launched 15″ and 17″ 5000 Series models , both with Skylake processors, up to 16GB of RAM and 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Finally, the company showed a budget convertible called the 11 3000 Series, which will cost $250. It has an 11″ touchscreen (1366 x 768), 2GB of RAM and uses a Core m3 processor running Windows 10. Ports are HDMI, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 (x2).
