At its revamped Dell Exclusive Store in Lowyat Plaza, Dell unveiled the new Inspiron 7000 series notebooks, as well as an enhanced XPS 13 notebook, powered by the new 8th Generation Intel Core processor.
Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1
The new Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 is available in Era Gray brushed aluminium body that tips the scales at 1.45kg. It houses a 13.3-inch FHD IPS touch display with active pen support for both on-screen drawing and writing.
It’s powered by the 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U or i7-8550U processor, coupled with 8GB of DDR4 memory and 256GB of SSD storage. PCIe NVMe SSD is also available as an option.
Despite being a budget notebook, it boasts USB Type-C with support for DisplayPort and power delivery, alongside two USB Type-A 3.1 ports, HDMI 2.0 port, a headphone jack and multi-format SD card slot.
Inspiron 15 7000
The Inspiron 15 7000 is an option for those who prefer a traditional laptop form factor. It doesn’t have the ability to “multi-mode” but the screen can lay flat at 180 degrees. Colour options include Platinum Silver or Pink Champagne. It comes with a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display or a UHD display option that covers 100% AdobeRGB.
The notebook comes in either an 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U or i7-8550U processor mated to up to 8GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD storage combo. On the graphics front, it gets NVIDIA GeForce GTX 940MX discrete graphics with 4GB of DDR5 VRAM.
Like the Inspiron 13 7000, it gets all the same I/O connectivity options with the addition of an Ethernet LAN port.
Also, Dell has updated the Inspiron 13 5000 2-in-1 and now has better performance in a super thin design. The new system now offers 8th Generation Intel Core power and DDR4 memory compared to its predecessor.
Updated XPS 13
The updated XPS 13, available in Silver, features a 13.3-inch display with the optional Quad HD+ InfinityEdge (optional touch) display, with better visuals and colours.
Dell claims the XPS 13 now performs 44% better with the new 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor.
