First Look: Dell adds a fold-back hinge to the Inspiron 11 3000

0:57 /

Another low-cost hybrid with a familiar design

[MUSIC]. Here's the new hybrid laptop that's gonna look familiar even though it's brand new. I'm Dan Ackman this is the Dell Inspiron 11. Now the reason why this thing looks a little familiar is because its got that fold back hinge that we've seen on the Lenovo Yoga and other systems, so you can bend it back like this and get kind of a kiosk mode, or you can flip it like this. And get a bit of a table-tent mode, and, of course, you can fold the entire thing down and get a tablet form. Now the tablet still has a keyboard down at the bottom, but the keyboard and touchpad get deactivated just like they do on the Yoga, on the HP Pavillion 360, and other similar systems. But this is still a great way to do kind of a two-in-one that doesn't compromise that original laptop form factor. So it still makes a really good full-time laptop and a decent part time latch out. This is a less expensive version than, let's say, some of the Yogas. It's powered by a Intel Pentium, still runs a full Windows 8 but starts at $449. I'm Dan Ackman, and that's the Dell Inspiron 11.
