Bracknell, UK, August 15th, 2016 – Students today know that having smart and up-to-date tech is essential to earning top grades in their studies. Dell’s Back to School products are the perfect companion for all students, whether they are gamers or budding entrepreneurs, musicians or fashionistas, because they are designed to help students do what they love both inside and outside of the classroom. With the ultimate visual experience, mobility, design and industry-leading battery life, students can start the year with their best foot forward.

Multi-functional Inspiron 2-in-1s: A Laptop and Tablet in One Device

Busy with classes, athletics, internships and more, students need devices like the Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 to fit their multidimensional needs. Research shows that 2016 is the year for 2-in-1s[1] and it’s easy to see why with a versatile 360 degree hinge that enables four modes of use: laptop mode for typing out a paper, tent mode for reviewing recipes while cooking, stand mode for streaming a favourite movie, or tablet mode for keeping up on social media.

The Inspiron 17-inch 7000 2-in-1 offers a brilliant aluminium design and the highest performance of the Inspiron line. The device includes a standard wide-viewing angle screen with FHD resolution, backlit keyboard, infrared camera and Waves MaxxAudio® Pro audio software. The precision touchpad delivers more precise pointing and gesture recognition, and the 802.11ac wireless capabilities provide improved range and speed for better surfing, streaming and video chats. Starting price: £999.00.

These Inspiron 5000 2-in-1s embrace a sleek new design and a brilliant wide-angle FHD resolution display.  The 5000s provide a great range of features and easy-to-use options.  Select models come with an infrared camera option which works with Windows Hello facial recognition so users can easily log in with just a look, and a backlit keyboard option makes working in dim environments more pleasant. Available SSDs provide longer battery life, quicker responsiveness and improved shock resistance as compared to conventional rotational HDDs. The 13-inch-2-in-1’s compact size and light weight make it ideal for everyday travel, and the 15-inch-2-in-1 has 40% more screen room than the 13-inch, making it well suited to working on multiple projects or enjoying movies with friends and family. Inspiron 5000 2-in-1s start at 1.62 kg* for 13 inch, 2.08 kg* for 15 inch with an FHD (1920 x 1080) True-life LED-backlit touch display and up to 16GB of dual channel DDR4 memory - perfect for multi-taskers who keep several applications open at the same time and switch between them.
