There came laptops, and then there came tablets, but when 2-in-1’s came into the tech marketplace, flexibility of use acquired an entirely new meaning. This year, Dell has introduced the all-new Dell Inspiron 14 5000 (5482) 2-in-1 laptops that promise to lend you portability with power. This laptop, available soon for pre-sale, comes with an eighth-generation Intel Core processor, NVIDIA GeForce MX130 graphics, up to 1TB of storage space, and studio-grade Dell Cinema for exceptional multimedia experiences.
The Inspiron 5482 is available in two processing configurations: an Intel i5-8265U that can be boosted up to 3.9 GHz and an incredible i7-8565U that supports over-clocking up to 4.6 GHz. You get 8GB RAM and 256GB of storage space for your computing needs, though the laptop also supports up to 1TB of additional storage through a hard drive.
A full High-Definition, In-Plane Switching screen make the touch display genuinely stand out, well complementing the platinum (or urban gray) body. Only a super-narrow bezel surrounds the frame, so you get a much bigger screen space than you’d expect. The result is a more captivating multimedia-play in terms of both picture and sound, further enhanced by the support for Dell Cinema (and Waves MaxxAudio Pro). The design is simple but stylish; the diamond-cut finishing and the brushed aluminum palm rest add a lovely note of sophistication.
True to its 2-in-1 roots, this Inspiron can be used in four different modes—laptop, tablet, computer and tent. An active stylus (optional) can make it a breeze to doodle or take notes on this laptop, irrespective of your physical location/surroundings. Since the keyboard is backlit, working in varying lighting conditions is not a problem. In fact, you can do away with the need to type in altogether and employ Cortana, the fingerprint reader, and Windows Hello to access your machine.
The portability of the 3.87lbs-Inspiron doesn’t stop, however, with the multiple modes of operation. In addition to a regular USB port and an SD card reader, the Dell Inspiron 14 5482 also has ample device support, including a USB Type-C port. This lets you connect to peripherals or an entire docking station, recreating a full-purpose experience.
Dell Mobile Connect unifies your smartphone and your computer, enabling you to work and manage notifications, messages, and so on, seamlessly. Since the thickness of this machine is a slim 0.79″, it fits snugly into backpacks and can be carried along with ease. Carefully tested for operation in extreme environments and under intensive use (read -40°C to 65°C and 5 million keystrokes), the durability of this Dell computer is never a concern.
Flexible laptops match modern lifestyles well, especially when they also boast of superior processing, high-quality graphics, and competent provisions for collaboration. The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 (5482) 2-in-1 laptop promises to be an exciting new computing partner for contemporary living.
