Inspiron 7000 Series: The thinnest, strongest, and best Inspiron  experience ever

The Inspiron 7000 Series laptops provide powerful performance in thin,  upscale designs. Featuring diamond-cut beveled edges, the 7000 Series’   forged aluminum design turns heads and feels reassuringly strong. All  Inspiron 7000 Series laptops come with a 10-finger, capacitive touch  display with edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass NBT for durability. The  Inspiron 14 and 15 can both be outfitted with optional Full HD, vibrant  300-nit touch displays featuring 97% more pixels than HD and 160-degree  viewing angles, twice as much as regular HD. The Inspiron 7000 Series  features backlit keyboards as standard to make it easy when the lights  are low, and is maximized for efficiency with Intel 4th  generation (Haswell) Core i5 and i7 options, as well as SSD options  (Inspiron 15 and Inspiron 17) to speed up boot times and application  loading.

Ideal for on-the-go types with up to 8 hours and 52 minutes of battery  lifei, the Inspiron 14 slips easily into a sleeve or bag with  its ultra-thin 0.6-inch (15.3mm) design, which is 27% thinner than its  predecessor, the Inspiron 14z. The Inspiron 15 is the perfect blend of  portability and performance, measuring under an inch thin (0.9 inches)  with a large 15.6-inch screen and up to 7 hours, 24 minutes of battery  lifeii. At just over an inch thin (1.1 inches), the Inspiron  17 comes with an optical drive and touch as standard, making it a  compelling desktop replacement entertainment center.

In keeping with Dell’s commitment to sustainability, the Dell Inspiron  7000 Series is the first to use wheat straw as part of its packaging.  This is the left over part of the wheat plant after harvesting that is  often burned by farmers. By using corrugate cardboard that is 15 percent  wheat straw, Dell is helping customers reduce their carbon footprint and  helping adjacent industries grow, while maintaining its commitment to  the environment.

    All these hardware posts really make my almost year-old P.C. look very obsolete, but that’s how the tech world works, after 3 months everything’s obsolete.

      I’m not feeling much impressed by any of these laptop refreshes. With the exception of a couple of designs this year (the Acer R7, the new Sony Vaio, the Lenovo Yoga, which was one of the best of last year too), not many OEM’s have attempted to really innovate into Windows 8.1.

      I will probably buy the 14″ 7000 with full HD screen, but what can it do (except W8 touch) that my current 4 year old Dell Studio 1558 full-HD display cant? Admittedly, battery life is longer, but you cud easily solve it by buying an external battery. Except names of processors and some tweaks of UI (touch, etc), there hasn’t been much change in the laptop space, that I agree with Bugbog below.
      It’s just that my 1558 will die one day and I need a workhorse to type on…

    I would be more impressed if the screen was edge to edge not just the glass panel on the front of the screen.
