Believe the hype: 2017 is the year laptops give users what they want

The past couple of years have been a whirlwind of technology hype.

We have been told about multi-screen culture, mobile workforces and global collaboration.

‘Work and play’ is no longer where you go, but where you take it with you.

This has changed what we expect from technology and one result was the slow decline of conventional computer systems.

In 2016 alone, the PC market contracted by more than 6 percent.

Consumers are clearly demanding laptops that complement their lifestyles and they are not settling for anything less, said Chris Buchanan, director of Client Solutions at Dell EMC:

“Habits have changed. Users know what they want from their machines. Once those boxes were ticked, sales of laptops started to go down since you can sweat them for quite a number of years.

“For a while everyone blamed smartphones and tablets for the decline. But technology companies were no longer giving consumers what they wanted.”

The laptop can still be the cornerstone of our technology-powered lifestyles, but only if it meets the expectations of modern users.

Whether you create content, watch movies or do research, laptops have to evolve without leaving any of their greatest characteristics behind.

“At Dell, we debated how to approach the new expectations from our customers. This soon settled on the slogan ‘We Love Your Work.’ A laptop is not just an accessory. It is a vital part of how we all create, collaborate and deliver. Taking that to heart, our teams created the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 Series 2-in-1.”

The Inspiron 13 5000 is a complete 2-in-1 hybrid, combining the latest in laptop design with the best in touchscreen tablet technologies.

Its innovative 360-degree hinge system has four different postures: as a conventional laptop, tent mode for surfaces with little space, stand mode for easy streaming and presentation, and tablet mode for a true tablet experience powered by Windows 10.

The 13.3 inch IPS screen is available in HD and FHD. It offers broad viewing angles, ideal for collaborative sessions, and the option of a solid state drive provides even longer battery life, not to mention lightning-fast responsiveness.

But even with a more traditional spinning drive, the Inspiron 13 5000 is a high-tech workhorse for today’s high-tech world, powered by the latest 7th generation Intel Core CPUs.

“People often tell me the laptop is dead,” said Buchanan.

“But I disagree. Yes, the old laptop is dead. Users have moved on and they expect their machines to do the same. This is what brought the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 to life.

“It is a hybrid for the new generation of computer users, young and old, the people who will not be held back by convention,” added Buchanan.

Stop sweating that old laptop. The market has listened and delivered a machine that you have been asking for.

Laptops have entered a new world, and the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 2-in-1 is blazing the trail forward.
