Intel's 11th generation Core "Tiger Lake" processors have recently launched, and laptops featuring them are already going on sale ahead of Black Friday. One such laptop is Dell's new Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1, which boasts an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor alongside integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics. The Inspiron 14 5000 line was highlighted in our best laptops list for last year's holiday season and seems to have worked its way into this year's discount spotlight.

New Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1: was $779, now $649 @Dell

This Intel Core i5 laptop is usually listed on the Dell website for $779 but is currently available at a discount totaling $130 when purchased with coupon code 50OFF699.

It comes with an Intel Core i5-1135G7, which is capable of reaching clockspeeds as high as 4.2GHz. This model includes a 256GB internal SSD and 8GB of 3200MHz DDR4.

Since this is a 2-in-1 laptop, it can be converted between a laptop and a tablet at will, with both modes making use of its 14-inch touch-sensitive Full HD (1920 x 1080) display. This edition comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit pre-installed.

Visit the new Inspiron 14 5000 product page at Dell for more specification details and checkout options, and don't forget the 50OFF699 coupon code for the final $50 off.

    This thing is a joke. Even the i7 version can only have a max of 12GB of memory (and only single channel), has HDMI 1.4 and no Thunderbolt 4, even though HDMI 2.0b and Thunderbolt 4 support are built into the freaking i7-1165G7 CPU. Reply

    Inspiron has always been cheap trash edition, why would it even have those ports? It's for people who read emails and type up blogs. If you want proper connectivity get XPS, or even better, skip Dell altogether and go for HP Sceptre. Reply

    Huh? Inspiron line is fine, this is just a bad product. Their EVO variants look excellent, and I can attest to how good their last-gen 15 inch 7590 is.

    I'd only buy an HP if I wanted a fun DIY project, because their cooling is absolute trash.

    Inspiron was (is?) historically the cheapo line. Reply

    Try with current Envy x360 13.3" lineup instead. For some 1000$ (US only) you can get it with Ryzen 5 & 1000 nits display. Reply

    While you all trash this laptop, you are getting it for $650. Those other machines cost much more. If you do a compairison of price points you won't find much else that comes close. My concern here is is it always single channel memory or can it be dual? My inspiron was listed as single only but when I popped it open it had a free slot and CPU-Z confirms it is now dual channel. My model is a 7000 from over a year and a half ago though so it might be different. Reply

    On their website It shows the ram as being 8GB, onboard, LPDDR4x, 4267MHz. If it is indeed single channel only at least its pretty quick single channel :/ Reply

    They had to start aggressively cutting stuff out. There have been great laptops available for $600 for as long as I can remember, but now 256GB/8GB is more than enough for mainstream consumers. If everyone has laptops with those specs, nobody will buy new ones! Hence the price increase across the board (with GPUs and cell phones too). Thank you, capitalism! Reply

    This laptop has a low midrange CPU, only 8GB RAM in single channel, only 256GB SSD and a garbage display. No full function USB-C nor thunderbolt. This is a piece of trash for $650. Reply

    Damnit, I meant a reply to you.

    What you are saying about HDMI 2 makes sense. But Thunderbolt isn't free, even on CPUs that have it on die like Icelake/Tigerlake. Thunderbolt requires additional retimer chips, which isn't necessary on designs lacking Thunderbolt.

    Also with DDR4-3200 you are limiting iGPU performance.
