Kaby Lake-R is finally in many notebooks and while we recently took a look at Dell's new XPS 13 Touch, today we take a look at a much different notebook. The Inspiron is all about usability and business, and while the Dell XPS 13 is super thin, the Inspiron 13 is a bit thicker.
This increased thickness allows for a better cooling solution, which can possibly increase performance. The Inspiron 13 7000 we are using can be put in a tablet mode and it has a 13" touchscreen. Let's take a look at what this more affordable Dell notebook has to offer.
The notebook has a few different configurations, but ours came with the i5-8250U processor with 4 cores and 8 threads, a 1.6GHz base clock with a 3.4GHz Turbo Boost. We also get 8GB of DDR4 running at 2400MHz, a 13.3" FHD (1080P) IPS Truelife LED-Backlit Narrow Border Touch Display, and supports pen and facial recognition.
We find two cameras both made by Realtek; an IR camera for Windows Hello and an HD camera. We also get an Intel Wireless AC 7265 card, a 256GB SanDisk X400 SSD, and a 38WHr 3-call battery. The notebook weighs 3.2lbs and measures in at 12.2"x8.5"x0.6".
Our unit costs roughly $780, but you can buy cheaper configurations or more expensive ones.
