Excellent build quality and high-end looks, combined with 8th Gen Intel processors could make the Inspiron 13 7000 a real winner, and even give the XPS 13 a run for its money.

The Dell Inspiron 7000 series has always been an enticing budget laptop for students, but it’s classier and thinner looks are sure to turn a few heads in the business world too. For the low price of $799 (about £620, AU$1,010), you’re getting a decent setup with an 8th generation Intel Core i5 CPU and a 128GB SSD. The 4GB of RAM on the base model is a shame, but hopefully it won’t be anything a small aftermarket upgrade won’t fix.

This year’s latest redesign of the 13-inch Dell Inspiron 13 7370-9665 is strikingly thinner than ever and better equipped with Intel’s recently announced 8th generation processors. As for design, it is an arrangement very similar to the Huawei MateBook X and this isn’t the only similarity between the two. Both machines are built with slender frames, milled completely from metal and Dell has even introduced Platinum Silver and Champagne Pink color. A purely clamshell laptop is strangely a return to form for the Dell Inspiron 7000 lineup, which has only seen 2-in-1 models for the last two years. Along the right edge of the keyboard is a power button with an integrated fingerprint scanner for another biometric option for a convenient way to sign in. Dell has drastically reduced the size of the bezels to thin bars. Last year’s Inspiron 13 model brought a great reduction in thickness at 0.76 inch (1.92 cm) and this latest version of the laptop continues to cut down on the bulk to a mere 0.65-inch (1.67 cm). It’s classier and thinner looks are sure to turn a few heads in the business world too.
