Dell Also Updates Its Inspiron Lineup With New Colors and Intel’s 7th Gen Processors


Right after Dell updated its XPS 13 lineup to come with everybody’s favorite color to talk about (Rose Gold), as well as being equipped with the latest Kaby Lake processors from Intel, the company quietly updated its Inspiron 15 and Inspiron 17 lineup as well.

Inspiron 15 and Inspiron 17 From Dell Get Updated to Run Intel’s Kaby Lake Processors and Come in a Variety of Colors to Choose at Better Prices

The Dell Inspiron 15 5000 and 17 5000 are going to be targeted to mainstream users, who need better processing firepower and naturally those who cannot shell out large amounts of money on an expensive notebook such as those from the XPS 13 series. According to the company, the Inspiron 15 5000 comes with a 15-inch 1080p display that also features a touch-enabled interface. The specifications of the 17 5000 series have not been listed, but both of them are going to be outfitted with Intel’s latest Kaby Lake series of processors.

According to Dell, both notebooks are going to feature a thinner form factor for better portability and will be available later this year to purchase in the following colors:

  • Sparkling white
  • Midnight Blue
  • Fog Night
  • Matte Gray
  • Black
  • Bali Blue
  • Tango Red
  • Cosmic Purple

Additionally, one added feature is the incorporation of an optional infrared camera with Windows Hello. This will help to unlock your notebook with a simple look, although it will only be available in the 15-inch variant of the notebook family. Details are pretty scarce at this current time, but consumers will be promised to purchase the Dell Inspiron series sporting Intel’s iGPU or a discrete graphics chip. The details of these discrete graphic chips have not been provided although I have a feeling that it will include NVIDIA’s GTX 900 mobility series.

According to the company, both Inspiron 15 and Inspiron 17 5000 will start getting sold from October 4 and will come with a retail price of $549.99. That’s not bad for a Kaby Lake powered notebook, although looking at the other specifications will also give us a clear idea of what sort of value for money you guys will be getting.
