Dell is good at making versatile 2-in-1 laptops, and this particular model is the right choice for most users. Not only does it offer competent performance, but the Dell Inspiron 13 7306 also has a premium design. It has a 13.3-inch (optional) 4K UHD display, platinum silver design, and a nicely built keyboard that features an improved lift-hinge for tilt.
The model comes with an active pen that is rechargeable. There is a built-in “pen garage” where you can store it (held in place with magnets) and automatically charge it. There are 4,096 pressure sensitivity levels with the pen, and it comes with features such as tilt detection and Bluetooth connectivity. The pen should create fluid movements whether you are writing, drawing, taking notes, etc. It’s just as smooth as writing with a fountain pen on paper.
Other input devices offer an intense experience as well. The trackpad is entirely responsive and smooth and is large enough for even four-finger gestures. As mentioned above, the keyboard has a nice tilt to make typing more comfortable.
There are relatively large speaker grilles on the underside of the 2-in-1’s chassis, close to the front. The Dell Inspiron 13 7306’s speakers use Waves MaxxAudio Pro technology (2 Wx2 = 4 W total) for tuning. You can also enjoy audio via a headset as there is a headphone/mic combo port. If the 13.3-inch display isn’t enough for you, connect the 2-in-1 to a larger monitor via the HDMI 2.0 port.
