PC MAKER Dell thinks the world needs a 17in hybrid device, and looks to fill the void with the Windows 10-powered Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1.
Unveiled at Computex in Taipei, the Dell Inspiron 17 7000 (above) eyes Lenovo's Yoga line up with the ability to transform easily from a laptop into a tablet thanks to a 360-degree hinge and built-in touchscreen.
It's powered by Intel's 6th-gen Skylake processor, up to Core i7, DDR4 RAM, USB Type-C connectivity and Standard Waves MaxxAudio Pro audio software. It also comes with an infrared camera on the front so that you can unlock the device using your mug with Microsoft's Windows Hello.
Dell's Inspiron 7000, which is also available in 15in and 13in models, will be available from next month starting at $729. No UK details have been made available yet.
This is not the only 17in laptop Dell is shoving onto the world. The firm launched a 17in 5000 Series laptop, alongside an updated 15in model, that have Intel Skylake power, up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and Full HD displays.
If you're after something a bit cheaper, and not as ludicrously big, Dell has added 13in and 15in models to the Inspiron 5000 2-in-1 series. Both models offer Full HD LED touchscreen displays, Core-I processors, up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and support for Windows Hello.
Dell's Inspiron 13 and 15 5000 2-in-1s will be available from 2 June in the US and China starting at $529. UK availability has not yet been announced.
If you're in the market for a bargain convertible, Dell has you covered with the the 11 3000 Series. The affordable 2-in-1, which will be available from next week for $249, features an 11in 1366×768 touchscreen, Intel Core m3 power and Microsoft's Windows 10 software.
Announcements from Computex are coming thick and fast. Intel has launched the Core i7 Extreme Edition CPU aimed at 4K and virtual reality gaming, and Asus has launched the MacBook-rivalling ZenBook 3. µ
