Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 7506 2-in-1 Black Edition
If you want one of the first Intel Xe Max laptops, then it's going to cost you about $1500 USD. Early adopters will definitely want to upgrade their drivers ASAP to make the most of the Dell convertible.
The Dell Inspiron 7506 2-in-1 checks off a lot of useful boxes for its price, but loud fans, middling battery life and a reflective screen hold it back.

If you’re willing to drop an inch of screen real estate, the similarly priced IdeaPad Flex 5 14 is likely a better choice overall. That Editors’ Choice winner offers better performance for the money thanks to its AMD Ryzen processor, and it delivered longer battery life in our identical test. But if you're looking decidedly large-screen, this Dell entry will get you in the door (and get a tablet in your lap) for a bunch less money than deluxe models like the big-screen HP Spectre x360 15 or Dell's Black Edition version of this machine.

Combining great performance and a plethora of features, some of which you’ll find in more premium laptops, the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition (7506) is certainly a terrific mid-range proposition. However, it also costs just as much as some (admittedly lower-specced) high-end laptops, so only commit when the whole package proves to be the best value for you.

However, there are disappointing elements to the Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition as well. The keyboard and touchpad could use a rethink, and the decision to forgo an Nvidia graphics chip and an H-series Intel processor means that the Black Edition is underpowered compared with its competitors. Most people looking for a 15-inch convertible notebook would be better served by the Spectre x360 15.

Intel Xe MAX: The Intel Iris Xe MAX (DG1) is a dedicated mobile entry level graphics card based on the Gen 12 architecture (similar to the integrated graphics of the Tiger Lake processors). Compared to the Iris Xe iGPU (e.g. in the i7-1185G7), the Xe MAX offers 4 GB LPDDR4x graphics memory and higher boost clock speeds (up to 1.65 GHz versus 1.35 GHz).
