Review Dell Inspiron duo Convertible Netbook/Tablet


Innovative. The well thought-out screen-flip design of the Inspiron duo 10" convertible notebook/tablet is an interesting innovation. But does this mean that has Dell crafted the finest convertible yet or just another high-tech toy?

Stylish Design and Nice Feel, Refined Screen-Flip Concept, Broadcom CrystalHD Decoder, Clearly Labeled Keyboard, Optional Accessories, Comfortable to Use

Few Accessories Included, Poor Display Quality, Glossy Screen, Short Battery Life, Limited Potential for Upgrades (7mm HDD), Few Ports, Slow Dell duo Stage UI (Tablet Interface), High Entry-Level Price

Dell Inspiron Duo Review


While the gorgeous rubberized chassis and responsive touchscreen make the Inspiron Duo seem compelling, its short battery life, sluggish touch software, mediocre media playback, and lack of ports make it a tough sell. For much less than the Duo's $549...

Attractive, sturdy design, Responsive touch screen, Good netbook performance

Sluggish touch software, Short battery life, No video-out or memory card slot on unit

Dell Inspiron Duo review: Dell Inspiron Duo


Inventive design; finger-friendly touch interface; reasonably priced.

Sluggish software; no SD card slot, Ethernet jack, or video output; unimpressive battery life.

With zippier hardware and a better battery, the flip-screen Dell Inspiron Duo could be a solid multimedia tablet/laptop combo.

Dell Inspiron Duo review


When Dell first demoed the Inspiron Duo and its vertically rotating screen on stage at IDF in September, our mouths nearly hit the floor. It looked like

Innovative vertical rotating screen design ; Extremely sturdy build ; Great chiclet keyboard

Terrible viewing angles ; Less than 3.5 hours of battery life ; Software layer is incredibly sluggish

Dell Inspiron Duo review


Enough memory, a fast hard drive, Broadcom accelerator, keyboard, clever rotating screen turning it into a stylish tablet

Inexplicably slow Dell touch apps, the way the finger touch resolution isn’t quite good enough to accurately tap fiddly Windows controls, the lack of a pen, the mean selection of ports, disappointing battery life

Of all the convertible tablet PCs we’ve seen over the years, the Inspiron Duo is the most stylish and the most fun. We expected the in-place rotating screen to be a gimmick but it’s sturdy and easy to use. The keyboard is one of the best we’ve used on...

Dell Inspiron Duo review


Can't decide between a tablet or a new laptop? Dell is hoping so, having combined both to make the Inspiron Duo. As party tricks go, the Duo's rotating screen is up there with balancing a broom handle on your nose. With a bucket of custard on top....

Dell Inspiron Duo review


The first convertible Windows 7 tablet to be any good, but battery life could be better.

Imaginative Design, Good Performance

Average Battery Life, People might miss the Android OS

The Dell Inspiron Duo ID-4600FNTis a sure shot hit for the people who live for innovative technology. However, at the end of the day, apart from its imaginative design, it is only a regular tablet with the regular features-albeit a good performance.

How sure are you that you need a touchscreen netbook? You probably don't really.

Solid build

Lack of ports, pointless gimmicky touchscreen, price

"Heavy tablet, but light net book"


The way it came, with Win 7 and a program by Dell to take advantage of the touch screen, it was quite sluggish. Removing the UI from the unit sped it up considerably, but Win 7 and touch screen are strange bed fellows. Once I installed clean Win 8 the...

After "upgrading" it to Win 8 - quite speedy. Responsive screen and easy navigation. So much better than with Won 7 that came with it.

Lost the accelerometer! Took me till yesterday 5/8/13 Almost a year) to find a Win 8 driver. Now it works like a charm.
