Dell has a whole new line up of affordable 2-in-1 laptops including it's biggest hybrid machine yet, the Inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1.

This giant 17-inch convertible notebook easily switches between regular laptop usage, to being a portable screen as well as the center of your next virtual board game night. Although, the Inspiron 17 features a commanding screen size, it's actually fairly thin.

This is thanks to the 7000-series new all-aluminum design, which also helps to passively cool the system as well. The 17-inch hybrid also features sixth generation Intel Core I-series processors and USB-C that connects to Dell's multiport adapter and charge other mobile devices.

If a 17-inch laptop is too big for your liking, Dell is also introducing 13-inch and 15-inch models. The new convertible Inspiron 7000-series will be available with a starting price of $799 on June 2.

The end result is a slightly lighter machine with the Inspiron 15 5000 2-in-1 weighing only 2.08kg and the 13-inch tipping the scales at 1.62kg.

Though it's lighter, Dell isn't skimping on the specs. Both laptops come with Full-HD LED touchscreen displays Core I processors and up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM.
