Laptop 2-in-1s never creep past 15 inches, and the thinking seems to be that flipping around such a massive piece of machine would be unnecessarily awkward. Dell has decided to blow up that idea by introducing the new Inspiron 7000, featuring a monstrous 17-inch convertible configuration.
15 hours of battery life. A gorgeous 13-inch display that looks like it's floating in air. Silky carbon fiber sandwiched between shiny aluminum. Starting at just $800. My only question about the new Dell XPS 13: what's the catch?
When Dell first showed off its Inspiron Duo at IFA, the hybrid tablet-netbook seemed like one very neat piece of vaporware. But! Could this promo video be a sign that Dell's Duo dreams are actually coming true?
Dell's Inspiron line has never been stodgy, exactly. They're steady, workaday notebooks that you'd take to college or have kicking around the living room. And that's been just fine! The R series, though, adds a bit more flair.
13, 15 and 17 inches, Dell's Core i3 and Core i5 Inspiron laptops should go on sale later today.
Dell's Inspiron Mini 10 is joining the coming wave of netbooks that will use Intel's next-generation Atom n450 processor. It'll give you a longer battery life, but may not have much of an impact beyond that.
Can't tell you the specs or price on this thing, but I can show you the back of the Inspiron Zino HD, which should tell you almost everything you want to know about it.
The Dell Mini 9 may not be Dell's newest netbook, but it's widely considered the best hackintosh around. The only problem? It was discontinued...or so we thought.
You can now configure Dell's latest netbook with a 1366x768 screen, which is big enough to handle 720p vids. No word on the other supposedly forthcoming extras, though.
Dell's Inspiron towers are what cheap computers should be—uh, cheap, customizable and colorful. They start at $300, but are oddly stopping over in China first before coming to the US "this spring."
I've tested Vista on two netbooks, and it's never been good (not counting the Vaio P). In fact, Vista has been unusable in both circumstances. Then I loaded Windows 7 onto the Mini 12.
As we've been waiting for, the Dell Mini 9 is now available with an HSDPA/EDGE 3G upgrade option. Priced at $125 ($120 of which is refundable with a 2-year AT&T agreement starting at $60/month), XP versions of new Mini 9s (not Mini 12s) can include the Dell Wireless 5530 HSDPA Internal Mini-card by Ericsson. We'll…
Dell's Mini 9 may be going for a pretty good price already (and an irritating disk error) but check out this deal sweetener: Dell's added a 32GB SSD option for just $100. The base model with that larger solid state drive is thus $449—and to me, that's pretty bonkers good value. [Dell via Engadget via Geekygadgets]
The Dell Inspiron Mini 12 is a bit confused. It packs an Intel Atom processor, which makes it a netbook. But it also has a 12-inch screen, which exceeds our definition of what a netbook can be. On one hand it's a natural evolution of the genre in an ever growing screen size arms race, topping the 10-inchers like a…
The Dell Inspiron Mini 12, Dell's upcoming 12-inch netbook, has been priced for the US. The 1.33GHz Atom version with 1GB RAM, 40GB storage, and Vista Home will start at $549. The 1.6GHz version with 60GB storage and 6-cell battery will debut at $599 (or $654 after promo). And if you're interested in the high end…
Bad news greeted new Dell Inspiron Mini 9 owners this week, in the form of a partition error that limited the amount of available disk space on the machine's 8GB and 16GB solid state drive. The problem limits the machines to using only 4GB of space, regardless of drive size, and only affected machines that shipped…
