Dell Inspiron 7306: Convertible for creative types

Dell Inspiron 7306: Convertible for creative types
The Dell Inspiron 7306 is mostly a success, overall. With a digital pen, convenient design and a good screen it could be described as a creative convertible. The issues we found would most likely be more relevant to enthusiasts such as ourselves.

With the new Inspiron 7306 2-in-1, Dell has created a truly sleek convertible with convenient design elements. Even though it does not quite reach certain advertised values, the 13.3-inch laptop receives a high rating from us. Perhaps we were overly critical in regards to some small drawbacks of the device in our in-depth review of the Dell Inspiron 7306 2-in-1.

The small, mobile creative center comes with many advantages. The metal chassis and the glass clickpad are both strong and robust. Meanwhile, the Intel i7-1165G7 showcases its expected level of prowess in our benchmarks. Since the RAM not only comes in a capacity of 16 GB (depending on the SKU), but also with the highest throughput in our comparison, the PCMark benchmark scores are above average. Similarly, the active stylus works reliably regardless of the orientation, its battery life is excellent, and it can be quickly recharged. The display of the convertible shines as well in our testing - primarily in the sun. Unfortunately, this is not a good thing, since the glossy panel can make drawing outdoors difficult. Although nothing is technically missing when it comes to the port selection, "one of each" is not the most practical approach, either. Particularly since the single USB-C port is also used for charging.

Overall, the Dell Inspiron 7306 has left us with somewhat mixed feelings, since we do like it both in terms of its form and functionality. However, there may be more to technology for everyday use than measurements and numbers.

From an early age I liked to thoroughly examine all kinds of devices to see how they worked, which also involved taking my own devices apart and therefore not always to the delight of my parents. Nevertheless, with my grandfather’s support, I became a computer and electronics tinkerer. With the family PC and Lego Mindstorms, my interested in software and programming took off, and I am currently an engineering program student. I enjoy building all sorts of gadgets with Arduino and 3D printers, and I still like to put electronic devices through their paces. By joining the Notebookcheck editorial team, I have been able to turn my hobby into a profession.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
