This year, Dell has come up with a fantastic line-up of new-and-improved Dell Inspiron laptops, many of them equipped with upgraded processors, dazzling graphics, and exceptional fitment to high-energy, modern lifestyles. The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 (7380) laptop is a particularly exciting launch, offering an upgraded eighth-generation Intel Core processor that delivers terrific speeds and performance. It also has Intel UHD graphics, support for Dell Mobile Connect, and the capacity to realize immersive multimedia through Dell Cinema.
Undoubtedly, the highlight of the new Dell Inspiron 7380 is its powerful Intel Core i7-8565U processor that can be boosted up to 4.6GHz. The computer is equipped with 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage space (SSD) and runs Windows 10 Home. Especially noteworthy is the battery life—it lasts for an entire day, depending on your usage. While the battery backup is long-lasting, you can charge it instantly too—it powers up from zero-battery in only 15 minutes.
If the champagne powder (or platinum silver) body sets your expectations for a vivid display experience, you’re unlikely to be disappointed. Even though this is a 13.3” laptop, you get a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a semblance of a much larger screen area.
This is on account of the narrow-bezel design that, indeed, makes the display seem wider than it actually is. The viewing experience is pleasant with Intel UHD Graphics 620, high-definition rendition, and Dell Cinema. Notably, the colors are highly accurate and the imagery ultra-bright (300nits brightness). The display also supports In-Plane Switching but is non-touch.
Let’s talk about the device support, a mandatory requirement in these times of collaboration and sharing. The Dell Inspiron 13 7380 has a USB 3.1 Type-C port in addition to an SD card reader, a regular USB 3.1 port, and an HDMI.
The latter lets you connect to external displays and playback any content of your choice; the quality can be as high as 4K Ultra HD. Device support as congenial as this makes this lightweight (3.53 lbs) and thin (0.62″) laptop even more portable than you’d normally expect.
On the durability front, it is reassuring to note the extensive testing that this computer has gone through. For instance, the hinges and buttons have undergone 20,000 rounds of open-close and 10 million keystrokes respectively.
This lets you work on your laptop peacefully, without the anxiety that travel or adverse weather will wreak havoc on its innards. In fact, if it is inconvenient to type in your password, say in public transport, there is a fingerprint reader to allow you to log in securely.
Further facilitating this mobility is a 180-degree spindle that lets you flatten your screen. Think discussions with colleagues, sharing a work-deck, or tallying notes–all these pursuits are a good deal more comfortable.
The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 (7380) laptops look set to be excellent successors of the Dell family heritage, delivering upgraded processing performance, superior A/V quality, and highly portable design.
