First Look: Dell Inspiron 7000 series

1:26 /

A high-end Inspiron makeover combines aluminum bodies, touch screens, and new CPUs.

I'm Dan Ackman and we are taking a look at Dell's new Inspiron 7000 series. Dell has recently reworked the way that Inspiron line comes together. They used to have the Inspiron, Insipiron R, Inspiron Z, now it's Inspiron 3000, 5000, and 7000. This 7000 represents the highest end of their mainstream Inspiron line and rather than the plastic Inspiron bodies you might be used to, these are made of aluminum. It's gonna come in 14, 15 and 17-inch versions and you'll be able to get a touch screen and each of those resolutions are gonna run from 1366 by 768 to 1920 by 1080 as with a lot of Dell products. There's gonna be a lot of configuration options you really opt at, you know, put it together in a lot of different ways. You can even get discreet graphics in the fifteenth and 17-inch versions. They certainly look and feel a lot more up scaled than you're maybe used to from the Inspiron brand if you're used to think of that as sort of Dell's budget line especially like that the models that we got a chance to briefly take a look at our thinner than the current Inspirons on the market about 15 millimeters for the 14-inch, obviously a little bit more for the 15 and 17-inch. Of course, they're not gonna be as budget priced as you're may be used to when you think of Dell's Inspiron line, but certainly less than the super high-end XPS line. I'm Dan Ackman and that is our First Look at Dell's Inspiron 7000 series.
