A sleek design for a convertible laptop
This Dell Inspiron 16 first scores points with its sleek, minimalist design, so it’s no-frills. But where this model really stands out is in the design of its screen. In fact, it is possible to choose four different positions: a practical “stand” mode to watch a movie, a “tent” mode particularly suitable for following a recipe, a “tablet” mode to use as… a true tablet, or the classic mode. Therefore, we are entitled to a very versatile model, which will easily change position thanks to its slim 360° hinge.
For the rest, the screen incorporates a 16-inch Full HD + (1,900 x 1,200 pixels) IPS panel, more than enough to work comfortably or to watch series and movies from time to time. You can also take advantage of the 16:10 format, which allows you to display more content on the screen. Convenient for multitasking. And it is that, despite the rather large size of this screen, this Dell Inspiron 16 will not be very heavy, since it weighs only 2.2 kg. So you can easily take it everywhere with you.
Intel’s 12th generation for more power
In the bowels of the Dell Inspiron 16 2-in-1 we will find an Intel Core i7-1260P processor (boost up to 4.7 GHz) supported by 16 GB of RAM. With such a configuration, the laptop will be able to chain tasks without slowing down and always with fluidity. Multitasking can be used without problems. In addition, the presence of a 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD allows for high storage capacity, as well as fast machine boot-ups and reduced load times. File transfers will be very fast. As far as gaming looks, some limits are to be expected as the Dell Inspiron 16 only has an integrated graphics chipset (Iris Xe) and not a graphics card.
Finally, on the autonomy side, the laptop should be able to last a whole day of work. We will especially appreciate the fast charging via USB-C, which saves up to 80% battery life in just one hour, according to the brand. The connection is not left out: it consists of two USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, a microSD card reader and a Jack connector.
