Breeze through spreadsheets with a 10-key number pad and zoom, point and scroll through content quickly with the large touchpad. Keep going ? even in the dark ? when you upgrade to a backlit keyboard for better typing accuracy in low light. Watch movies, load software or burn your favorite playlist with the built-in DVD drive. It's great for storing large volumes of data on DVDs so you can archive files and applications.
The forefront of touch technology:
Includes an HD touch option for a truly interactive experience that maintains amazing detail and crisp, brilliant images.
Your every tap, swipe and scroll is more responsive and accurate with a 10-finger capacitive touch screen. Capacitive touch feels more natural and fluid than optical touch because capacitive sensors are right under the screen, compared to optical touch which uses cameras in the bezel of the laptop. Have more fun with Windows 8.1, swipe through your photo album faster and unleash your creativity with capacitive touch.
We want you to love your new PC for years to come. That's why we test Inspiron laptops for reliability not just in the places where you expect it, but for the open road ahead.
Designed for the real world ? because that's where life happens.
Turn up the heat: From locker rooms to locked cars, we test Inspiron laptops for survival in harsh short-term heat conditions of up to 65?C/149?F.
Everything hinges on it: We test Inspiron laptop hinges to ensure they still feel tight, even after opening and closing the lid 20,000 times.
Keys to success: We test commonly used keys for 10 million keystrokes and touch pad buttons 1 million times with no failure. So go ahead, finish your novel.
Buttoned up: No matter what you set your power and multimedia buttons to do, we've tested them all to survive up to 40,000 pushes.
Twist and turn: Call us excessive, but after twisting an Inspiron laptop's base and lid more than 25,000 times, we can assure you the parts inside are well protected.
Always a good fit: You'll probably never need to remove and reinstall your Inspiron's battery 750 times, but you can rest easy knowing that we've tested even that.
