Recently, Dell has added a handful of new Windows devices to its product portfolio, including two new 2-in-1 PCs, as well as a AIO. The two new 2-in-1 PCs include the Inspiron 11 3000 Series and Inspiron 13 7000 Series. The Inspiron 11 3000 comes with mid-range specifications with a quad-core Intel Pentium processor and features an 11-inch, 10-finger capacitive touch edge-to-edge display with wide viewing angles, and a resolution of 1366 by 768, 500GB HDD and 4GB of DDR3 RAM.

Dell claims the machine can provide over eight hours of battery life, but it’s too early to say how long it will really last since the PC is not yet available on the market. On the connectivity side, there’s a HDMI port, a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports and a media card slot. The device comes with several OS options, including Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, Windows 8 Single Language (EM), Windows 8 Chinese Edition and Ubuntu. Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series will hit retail from June 19th on Dell’s website, starting at $449.99.

Second on the list is the Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 PC, which comes with the 4th generation Intel processor, with an option to choose from either i3 or i5. The device comes with a 13.3-inch display with two different resolutions: one comes with a full HD 1920 by 1080 pixels, while the other one comes with a 1366 by 768 pixels. The laptop also comes with up to 8GB of RAM, 500 GB hard drive as well as SSD storage option, and comes with Windows 8.1 as its operating system. Those interested in the Inspiron 13 7000 Series have to wait a little longer as the laptop will hit retail in September. There’s no word about its pricing at the moment, but we don’t expect it to be cheap.

Lastly, there’s an Inspiron 20 3000 Series AIO as well, which comes with a 19.5-inch HD display with Intel Pentium dual-core and quad-core processor options. The AIO offers up to 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, 4-in-1 card reader, and comes with a bunch of OS options: Windows 8.1 with Bing, Windows 8.1 and Ubuntu. It will hit retail in the US neginning July 1st, but it’s already available in select markets across the globe, starting at $349.99.
