Dell refreshes naming scheme with new Inspiron 7000 series

Dell's newest laptops feature Haswell CPUs, optional NVIDIA graphics and a new name.

Following Dell's recent move to go private, the company is now attempting to clear up confusion surrounding its laptop naming scheme. The latest laptop refresh brings it with a trio of new designations, the Insprion 3000/5000/7000 series, with the higher-end 7000 notebooks making their debut today.

Starting at $699, the 7000 lineup is available in 14", 15" and 17" models to go along with an all aluminum design, a backlit keyboard with a flush trackpad and a Gorilla Glass touchscreen. The displays range in resolution from 1366x768 to an optional Full-HD 1920x1080 and are powered by Intel's Haswell CPUs.

Dell is touting battery life as a big feature for the new 7000 series, with the 14" model expected to last 9 hours thanks to Haswell's energy-saving features. In addition, the 15" and 17" versions will offer optional NVIDIA graphics, although that's likely to take a chunk out of battery life.

The trio is expected to be made available on the 26th of September, with the 15" coming in cheapest at $699 and the 14" and 17" models following with an $849 price tag.
