Dell unveils a range of affordable PCs ahead of Windows 10

While Dell managed to surprise us with its rather handsome XPS 15 -- the sibling of the thin-bezel XPS 13 laptop -- at Computex, it's also bringing us a range of both new and refreshed models ahead of the Windows 10 launch. Starting off with the headliner, we have the Inspiron 15 7000 series laptop (pictured above) that runs on Intel's quad-core Core i7H chip, and it's garnished with Waves MaxxAudio enhancement plus a "performance class" NVIDIA graphics processor with 4GB of GDDR5 memory, so you'll get some good gaming action on it. Most importantly, the machine's 15-inch FHD display has an optional 4K touchscreen upgrade that looks stunning, though it isn't clear as to how long that 74WHr battery can last for. The price? All we know so far is that it'll start from 5,999 yuan or about $970 when it launches in China on August 7th.

For those seeking more versatility, there's the new Inspiron 15 7000 Series 2-in-1, which is pitched as an affordable hybrid laptop. It features a massive 15.6-inch IPS touchscreen, as well as up to almost nine hours of battery life, spill-resistant backlit keyboard, brushed aluminum body and MaxxAudio software. This beast will land in the US on June 23rd with a starting price of $550.

Moving toward the mobility side of the spectrum, we have the smaller and cooler-looking Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 -- seen here in red and gold color options -- that will be refreshed with Intel's more efficient Braswell chip. It'll arrive in the US on July 29th with a $350 base price, presumably coming with the same 11.6-inch (1,366 x 768) IPS touchscreen, 4GB of RAM and 500GB hard drive. Alternatively, there's also the Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 (pictured right) should you require more power and a built-in stylus.

Don't worry, Dell hasn't forgotten the all-in-one desktop market. Here you have the Inspiron 20 3000 Series and the slightly larger Inspiron 24 3000 Series, both featuring almost identical slim designs -- available in either black or white -- that Dell VP of Product Marketing Ray Wah reckons would make a nice piece of furniture in our homes. Depending on the region, both models will come with either AMD or Intel Braswell chips plus an optical drive, with the Inspiron 20 featuring a 19.5-inch HD+ screen and the Inspiron 24 packing a 23.8-inch FHD IPS display. If you need a touchscreen on either, it's optional. If the larger model tickles your fancy, you can grab one from Dell's US website on June 2nd with a starting price of $480. As for the smaller $330 version, it won't be arriving until October.
