Dell has rather silently unveiled its newest Inspiron 13 7000 convertible notebook with 13.3-inch 1080p touchscreen and AMD Mobile Ryzen APUs, starting at $729.99.

Spotted originally by Anandtech.com, the new Dell Inspiron 13 7000 measures at 322.4x224x18.7-19.2mm (WxDxH) and weighs 1.75kg, so it should be quite a portable little system. The star of the show is the 13.3-inch FHD (1920x1080) IPS Truelife LED-backlit touchscreen which promises wide viewing angles and probably has good color accuracy.

Configuration-wise, the new Dell Inspiron 13 7000 convertible starts with AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U mobile APU, which is has a Zen-based quad-core CPU with simultaneous multithreading (SMT) support for eight threads, 2.0GHz base, and 3.8GHz Turbo clocks, 6MB of cache and Vega 8 GPU with 512 Stream Processors and 1.1GHz clock. It also comes 8GB of DDR4-2400 memory (upgradable to 16GB) and a 256GB SSD for storage, all for US $729.99.

The second SKU, priced at $879.99, comes with AMD Ryzen 7 2700U mobile APU, which is still a quad-core CPU part with eight threads, but comes with a slightly higher 2.2GHz base clock and the same 3.8GHz Turbo clock, 6MB of cache and Vega 10 GPU with 640 Stream Processors and 1.3GHz clock. Strangely, this one comes with 12GB of DDR4-2400 memory (upgradeable up to 16GB) and the same 256GB SSD for storage. 

The rest of the specifications for both SKUs include 802.11ac dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1, 42Whr 3-cell battery, two USB 3.0 Type-A and one USB 3.0 Type-C port, HDMI output, webcam with IR, which works with Windows Hello, card reader and more.

There is also a third option which adds 14x7 direct access to hardware and software support with one year Premium Support and Accidental Damage Service, which raises the price to US $1,019.

Strangely enough, Anandtech.com also spotted that first two SKUs are actually cheaper at Bestbuy.com, coming in at $700 and $850.

Unfortunately, we still can't find those SKUs in Europe as the Inspiron 13 7000 is only available with Intel 8th generation Core U-series CPUs.
