Three more models from Dell's Inspiron 7000 are now available. The Inspiron 7370 and 7373 come with 13.3-inch 1080p displays, while the 7573 sports a 15.6-inch 1080p or 4K display. All models can be powered by Intel's new i7-8550U or i5-8250U CPUs coupled with up to 16 GB DDR4 RAM and up to 512 GB SSDs, but only the 15-inch model comes with Nvidia's 940MX GPU.

A few weeks ago, Dell announced that the Inspiron 2-in-1 notebooks will get an Intel gen 8 CPU refresh. Back then, Dell was mentioning 2 models from the 7000 series, but it seems that those are not the only ones getting the new CPUs, as the company intends to add three more models to the series – two 13-incehrs and one 15-incher.

The more budget-oriented 7370 notebook lets user choose between touchscreen (hinged screen) and non-touchscreen 13.3-inch 1080p displays. It can be powered by the new i7-8550U or i5-8250U CPUs coupled with 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and an Intel UHD Graphics 620 iGPU. In order to keep the profile as slim as possible, Dell decided to offer only PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD storage options that go up to 512 GB. The touchscreen version features an infrared camera that enables face recognition via Windows Hello. Due to the use of ultra-low voltage CPUs and smaller display, the battery included with this model is only a 3-cell 38 Wh one.

The 7373 model is the second, more expensive 13-incher, as it comes with additional features, such as dual stereo speakers, a 720p webcam and Intel Optane compatibility. The CPU/iGPU/memory/storage configurations are the same ones from the 7370 model, however, the 7373 has more ports, including a USB Type-C and two USB 3.1 connectors. The Total weight of both 13-inchers is 3.59 lbs for the touchscreen models, and 3.31 lbs for the non-touchscreen ones.

With the 15.6-inch 7573 model, Dell offers a choice between 1080p and 4K displays. Users can also opt for an Nvidia 940MX dedicated GPU. The CPU and memory specs are the same from the aforementioned 13-inchers, but with the 7573, users can choose to add an HDD with up to 2 TB capacity to the NVMe SSD. The battery included is a 3-cell 42 Wh one, and the total weight is upped to 5 lbs.

Prices for the 7370 and 7573 notebooks start at US$799, while the 7373 costs at least US$849.99.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
