After we saw ASUS’ roadmap for 2014 leak online, details about the upcoming products of another brand vendor have surfaced.We’re talking about Dell, which is gearing up to produce next-gen tablet models from the Venue family, but not only that.
The company will be refreshing its Dell Inspiron 11 and Inspiron 13 series and will be making them available as 2-1 convertibles too (via TabTec). Let’s have a look and see what to expect exactly.
Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series (two models priced $399 / $499 - €290 / €363)- Clamshell 11.6-inch HD touch / Intel HSW/Bay Trail/AMD
- 2-in-1 convertible 11.6-inch IPS HD touch / Intel Bay Trail (coming in April 2014)
Dell Inspiron 14/15 3000 Series (priced $349 / €254)- 14-inch and 15-inch HD displays
- HSW/BDW CPU + updated entry discrete
- Optical drive (VALUE with Optical coming April 2014)
- AMD options
Dell Inspiron 14/15/17 5000 Series (priced $499 / $499 / $599 - €363 / €363 / €435)- 14-inch, 15-inch HD, 17-inch HD+ display & FHD touch up-sell displays
- HSW/BDW CPU + discrete up-sells
- AMD Kaveri CPU 14-inch/15-inch
Inspiron 13/15 7000 Series (two models priced $649/ $649 - €472 / €472)- 13-inch foldable 2-in-1 / HSW/BDW / Pen support (coming in July 2014)
- 15-inch performance HSW BDW UB with optional 25W discrete (coming in July 2014)
As you can see, if you’re craving a 2-in-1 device, which seems quite popular these days, all you have to do is wait for the new Dell Inspiron 11 or Inspiron 13. The cheapest will start at $499 / €363 and bundle a Bay Trail processor and 11.6-inch HD display, which is not bad at all.
Also note, all notebook models will be running Windows 8.1 out of the box. Dell will probably show off these new products in April 2014 at the Intel Developer Forum.
