The Dell Inspiron 7000 Series 13.3

The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 is one of the best affordable 2-in-1s available right now. It sold for an affordable price and for that kind of money you’re getting a good looking and solid built device, with a tiny IPS touchscreen, a comfortable keyboard and hardware. This device is a fine product with quality features which are tucked inside a nice looking body with any color. It’s made from plastic, but actually feels strong, as the laptop hardly bulges even when pressing on the cover in the middle of the keyboard. The entire body is made with a soft material which offers excellent grip and the same time believing it should resist scratches quite well.

This Dell has a unique allure as well and liked it from the moment got out of the box. The longer edges are nicely rounded, while the left and right sides are straightly cut, and that makes-up for both a beautiful and a practical design. This aesthetics are actually simple, with just a Dell logo on the hood and some stickers on the palm rest and the back which could be easily peeled off.

The other hand the Inspiron 13 7000 is heavy, tipping up the scales at about 4 kg, and not the slimmest out there either. As long as you’ll keep it on a desk, that shouldn’t bother you at all, but once you pick up or turn into a tablet, you’ll quickly feel the weight. Regardless, I’d say Dell hit a nice compromise here: they made the laptop a bit heavier, and the same time built it strong. As mentioned earlier, this device is a convertible and its screen flips around the back to 360 degrees. This enables users to use in two different ways, either in the form of a tablet or the normal portable computer. The device is filled with amazing features, that makes users stay glue with and explore round.

On one hand, the keys and the trackpad are deactivated once the screen goes past 180 degrees. And on the other the keyboard is recessed and framed by a plastic rim that’s just a bit higher than the keys. So, when you’ll put the laptop down gives you a new style, it will lean on this rim and not on the keys. The hardware is fan cooled on this Dell, but the fan will remain mostly switched OFF as long as you’re using the computer lightly. It will kick in when needed and roars up to about 50 cm away from the laptop mostly where a user’s head would be, so noise is never a major complaint here. But keep in mind this laptop is never completely silent, as it comes with a spinning low noise fan, although that can be addressed if you want to.

At the end of the day, while not without quirks, the Dell Inspiron 13 7000 is a good device and should be on your list if you’re after a 13 inch 2-in-1 convertible and only have some money to spare.
