All new 2-in-1 models can be powered by either the Intel Core i5-8250U or Core i7-8550U quad-core / eight-thread CPUs and will be available starting October 3. The 13.3-inch Inspiron 5379 has no discrete GPU and can cost as low as US$749.99. The 15.6-inch Inspiron 7570 comes with the older 940 MX GPU from Nevidia and costs as low as US$799. The top of the line Inspiron 7773 features the new Nvidia MX150 GPU and costs as low as US$949.99.

Dell is refreshing the Inspiron 2-in-1 laptop series by adding Intel’s new gen 8 CPUs as well as new configurations to the 13.3-inch, 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch versions.

First up is the new 13.3-inch Inspiron 5379. There’s a choice between the ultra-low voltage Core i5-8250U and the Core i7-8550U quad-core / eight-thread CPUs. Users can also choose between a 768p or 1080p IPS display. This model can handle up to 16 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM, but there is no discrete GPU option. On the storage side, options include a default 1 TB HDD and up to one 512 GB SSD. The Inspiron 5379 weighs 3.6 lbs, comes with a 42 Wh battery and will be priced as low as $749,99.

Next is the 15.6-inch 7570 model that comes with three display options: a 1080p non-touchscreen, a 1080p touchscreen and a 4K touchscreen. Dell only provides the older 940MX 4GB GPU for this model. The CPU options are the same as the ones from the 13.3-inch version, but the 7570 variant can integrate up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400.  The storage options include up to one 2 TB HDD, up to one SATA 512 GB SSD, and up to one M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD. There’s support for Intel Optane drives, as well. This model comes with a 180-degrees hinge, 56 Wh battery and weighs 4.4 lbs. Prices start at US$799, depending on options.

The top of the line is represented by the new 17.3-inch 7773 model. The CPU options remain the same new gen 8 CPUs from the previous models, but the maximum RAM capacity is only 16 GB. It comes with a 180-degrees hinged 1080p IPS touchscreen display, and also integrates the new MX150 4GB GDDR5 GPU from Nvidia. Storage options include up to one 1 TB M.2 SSD and up to 2 TB HDD. Due to the bigger size and the 56 Wh battery, the Inspiron 7773 weighs 6.49 lbs. Prices for this model start at US$949.99.

All the new Inspiron 2-in-1 models will begin shipping on October 3rd.

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.
