Dell Launches Ryzen-Powered Inspiron 13 7000: 13.3" 1080p, 2-in-1 Convertible

Despite not wanting to do away with Intel's dominance in its portfolio anytime soon, Dell is obviously looking to better round up its product lineup with some red team-powered goodies. Case in point: the 2-in-1 convertible Dell Inspiron 13 7000, which makes use of AMD's latest Ryzen mobile APUs to deliver a strong computing performance, whilst also emphasizing content consumption. There's an option for all budgets (starting from $700 for the base version and up to $1019 for the top-tier one), and the CPU choices are naturally based around either AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U with a Radeon Vega 8 iGPU, or the more powerful Ryzen 7 2700U with a Radeon Vega 10 iGPU (both 4 core, 8-thread CPUs, but with 512 and 640 Vega Stream processors, respectively).
Specs-wise, users can configure their convertible with 8, 12 or 16 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM and a 256GB SSD, which is enough for most content users might want to run on a portable such as this. The convertible itself looks solidly built and has a premium look to it, thanks to the brushed aluminum, which brings the weight to a maximum of 1.75 kg (3.86 lbs) depending on the configuration.

Nah, Inspirons ain't for gaming. Alienwares are the ones why Dell might feel GPP is not something they wanted to sign.

For the same price you can get a much better gaming laptop with a non shared VRAM GPU.

Till those Ryzen laptops pack a dedicated GPU or drop premium 2700U model under $700, just not worth it.

Yes it still ain't gaming laptop. For 13.3" form factor ultra portable+convertible there is always some sort of price premium: the smaller it is the more it usually costs. Take a look i.e. lenovo yoga 720 13.3", it starts at $990, and it just have kaby refresh ulv chip on it. What matters on those though is size and battery life, which from the former is unknown before third party tests.
