What will you do with your all-in-one? Dell’s two latest Inspirons cater to two very specific experiences: Its new Inspiron 24 5000 AIO is meant to stream video like a champ with anti-buffering software, whereas the Inspiron 27 7000 AIO is VR-ready and can handle games and content creation.
Both of the All-in-Ones have Dell’s InfinityEdge displays, like what you’ll find on the XPS 13 laptop, and sleek new silver and black designs, which look far nicer than the previous models with thick bezels. Their hinges bend the screen down towards the desk, just like Microsoft's Surface Studio.
The Inspiron 24 5000 (available this month starting at $700) has a 24-inch IPS FHD display and runs on a 7th-gen AMD CPU and AMD Polaris RX5000 GPU. Its killer app is Dell's and Rivet Networks' Smartbyte, which prioritizes video calls and streaming ahead of other traffic. In theory, this means less time buffering and more time watching video.
The Inspiron 27 7000 (starting at $1,000) uses "the latest multi-core Ryzen AMD processors" in combination with Polaris RX500 graphics to power either its standard FHD display or an optional 4K UHD screen. Dell said nothing further about which Ryzen chip(s) would be available in the Inspiron 27 7000. Its internal subwoofer promises loud, clear audio and strong bass.
You get far-field voice activation for Cortana, USB Type-C 3.1, and Windows Hello login via infrared cameras on both models. Several storage options, including SSDs and dual drives, are available on either system.
We expect to learn more after Dell’s Computex press conference.
