  • Improved Intel Core i7 paired with Iris Xe Max discrete graphics
  • Snazzy black color scheme
  • Built-in digital stylus
  • Lackluster battery life

Summary

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 (7506) is the company's most premium large-screen convertible for consumers. Available in two colors, the Inspiron 7506 is really two models in one: the Platinum Silver version supports active pen and Microsoft Pen Protocol 1.5, while the Element Black model comes built-in with an active pen and supports the latest Microsoft Pen Protocol 2.0. Still, it can't match the excellent HP Spectre x360 15 on value, performance, or features.

Rundown

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The Inspiron 7506 2-in-1 is slightly smaller in length and width while being slightly thicker by almost a millimeter. It lacks the luxurious metal materials of the XPS series while avoiding the overly plastic feel of cheaper Inspiron 3000 or HP Pavilion systems. The typing experience is not as crisp as on the Dell XPS or HP Spectre.

Dell's Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 offers plenty of screen real estate and physical flexibility for a palatable $734.99 asking price. Tapping and drawing on the laptop's display is a cinch, thanks to a sturdy hinge that keeps bouncing to a minimum. The upgraded Black Edition has an upgraded Intel Core i7 paired with Iris Xe Max discrete graphics.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek design with 360-degree hinge
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Lackluster Intel Core i5 performance
  • Lack of USB-C port

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition is the company's most premium large-screen convertible for consumers. It has a 15.6-inch 4K display and a built-in holder for the included digital stylus. It's one of the first laptops to come with Intel's new Iris Xe Max discrete graphics. But it can't match the excellent HP Spectre x360 15 on value, performance, or features.

Pros[**]
  • Stunning 4K display with Dolby Vision HDR

Dell Inspiron 7506 2-in-1 has a 15.6-inch 1920x1080 screen, four-core/eight-thread Intel i5 CPU, 12GB of RAM (3200MHz DDR4), and a 512GB SSD boosted by 32GB of Intel Optane memory (459GB available for use) It's available for £849 + VAT (£1,018) in the UK, and $989 in the US. As a laptop, this is a perfectly usable machine, but suffers when it comes to turning into tablet mode.

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition (7506) boasts a combination of premium and not-so premium elements. It comes with a 4K touch display, active pen, and hinge pen storage. Sadly, the backlit keyboard is a bit stiff – definitely stiffer than the HP Spectre and the Dell XPS.
