The other day I saw an ad on TV and I thought that was the most amazing product that I have seen in a long time. It is put out by Dell(which I am typically not a fan of) and is called the Inspiron Duo. The duo is a tablet/notebook combo, which in a lot of ways is the smartest move Dell has made in a long time. The duo has a LCD screen that flips inside or outside depending on if you have it open or closed.
I am not sure if I can describe it as well as it really is, but the LCD screen doubles as a touch screen when you have it flipped in close. Once you open it, the LCD flips in the typical notebook. It comes in the fun colors that Dell is known for and has a few exciting specs in my opinion. Like these for example.

Best part of all, you can get this duo for about the cost of a Wi-Fi iPad, so you would be getting a much better deal. I really think this could become a game changer for tablets and it is so much better option than the Dell Streak.
You can buy the Dell Inspiron Duo for $549.99 from Dell’s website or you might be able to find at select retail stores. I would love to get my paws on one of those, I think it would be one of the better new computer models out there. Here is the commercial that I saw the other day, which in my opinion really showed off the computer better than their own website does.
What do you think about the new Inspiron Duo?
