[Anandtech.com] Dell Launches AMD Ryzen-Based Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 Convertible, Starts at $700


When AMD announced its Ryzen Mobile processors last October, it had three launch customers with three laptop models. Back in early March this year Dell joined the Ryzen Mobile party with its Inspiron 17 5000 and this month the company expanded its Zen-based offerings with its convertible Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 notebook.

Dell currently offers two models of the Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1, one based on AMD’s Ryzen 5 2500U with the Radeon Vega 8 iGPU, and the other on the more powerful Ryzen 7 2700U with the Radeon Vega 10 iGPU (see exact SKUs that Dell offers in the table below). The systems are equipped with 8 GB or 12 GB of DDR4-2400 memory (can be expanded to 16 GB in built-to-order configurations) as well as a 256 GB SSD, which is fairly standard for mainstream laptops nowadays. The notebook has a 13.3-inch IPS TrueLife-branded glossy LED-backlit touch display with brightness and viewing angles that is normally expected from mainstream IPS LCDs. The display lid features a wide viewing angle webcam with IR, so the machine supports facial recognition and Windows Hello.

I/O capabilities of the Ryzen-powered hybrid Inspiron 13 are the same for all models: a 802.11ac Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 module, a USB 3.0 Type-C port, two USB 3.0 headers, an HDMI output, a webcam, an SD-card reader, a microphone array, stereo speakers with the Waves MaxxAudio Pro enhancements, a TRRS audio connector, and a backlit keyboard.

The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 laptop comes in 19.2-mm (0.76-inch) thick chassis made of brushed aluminum and weighs up to 1.75 kg (3.86 lbs) depending on the configuration. Metal enclosure should give the Inspiron 13 7000 a premium feel and provide some rigidity to the construction. Meanwhile, the weight of the laptop is a bit too high for a 13-incher (and higher when compared to Lenovo's Ryzen Mobile-based Ideapad 720s).


Dell does not publish battery life of the laptop, but only says that it is equiped with a 42 Wh battery pack. The capacity of the battery is ~10% lower when compared to other Ryzen Mobile-based 13-inch notebooks, so it remains to be seen how long the Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 is going to last on one charge and how it compares to rivals featuring the same APUs.

Price Dell.com $730 $880 $1,019 BestBuy $700 $850 - Dell’s Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 convertibles featuring AMD’s Ryzen Mobile APUs are already available directly from Dell starting at $730 as well as from leading retailers like BestBuy starting at $700. The latter apparently sells base configurations at slightly lower prices than the manufacturer does.
