Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 13-7348-0309
The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 is a solid choice if you’re looking for a speedy notebook that’s reasonably light-weight, and which can also occasionally be used in tent or tablet mode. But before plunking down $750 or more to buy this particular model, you should keep in mind that it gets kind of lousy battery life, has a non-removable battery has a somewhat noisy fan, and is a little too big and heavy to use as a handheld tablet for an extender period of time.

This machine is an ideal notebook for students who need to bang out papers and general users who want a fast, compact notebook to tote around. If battery life and weight are your primary concerns, though, you'd be better off with HP's Spectre x360. But if those aren't major priorities, you could do a lot worse than Dell's special edition Inspiron.

The build quality, software experience, and overall design leave little to gripe about. The Inspiron 13 7000 SE looks and feels like a premium machine, through and through. The only major drawbacks come as a direct result of this machine being so powerful. Excess heat and fan noise to an extent, will be unavoidable, so those favoring an ultra-quiet device will need to look elsewhere.

While it can sometimes get a little too hot for comfort, the Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Special Edition is a powerful and stylish hybrid. The $1,000 Core i7 configuration we tested is faster than most systems in its class. Overall, we prefer the HP Spectre x360 for its longer battery life and lighter all-aluminum design, but the Inspiron 13 Special Edition deftly balances price and performance, with some seriously sharp looks.

The graphics card it runs on is the standard Intel HD Graphics 5500.
The Inspiron-13-7348 either features a Core i5 with 8 GB RAM and 500GB HDD or a Core i7 clocked at 2,4 GHz (max. turbo clock: 3 GHz) with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB HDD.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
