Dell Inspiron 15.6” 2-in-1 Touchscreen Laptop with Intel 3805U Processor, 4GB RAM, and 500GB Hard Drive (Manufacturer Refurbished)
This computer combines the best features of a laptop and a tablet into one device. Turn the screen so it floats above the full-sized backlit keyboard, or bend it all the way back to cover the keyboard, creating a de facto tablet. This versatility lets you easily swerve between tasks, from typing emails to scrolling through news stories.
Touchscreen Display: Tablet-Like Control
Zoom in on photos, jump to the next story on news apps, or play a mobile game on a bigger screen—all without using the keyboard or touchpad. A touchscreen display expands your control, giving you more ways to interact with apps and programs that support touch gestures. For more traditional tasks, such as answering emails, you can move back to the keyboard at any time.
Quickly Access Data
The Intel Pentium processor flies through all of your data to pull up the files you want the second you want them. Its dual cores share the workload to keep things moving smoothly, so you notice minimal on-screen freezing or lag.
The computer’s battery can last for up to seven hours on a single charge, so you can go through a full work day without being tethered to an outlet. The laptop also weighs in at under 5 pounds, so it’s comfortable to schlep around without straining your shoulder, arm, or the tip of your nose when you balance it there on a dare.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backwards compatibility.

Michael Dell has always been a little bit ahead of the pack. At the age of 16, he was running a personal stamp auction and newspaper subscription service, earning more money than his high school Economics teacher. As a freshman at the University of Texas, he was building and selling computers while his classmates were busy dissecting the latest Air Supply record. By 27, Dell had earned a ranking on the Fortune 500, the youngest CEO to do so.
Dell’s drive for innovation became the core that powered Dell Inc. His belief that “technology is about enabling human potential” helped cement the company as the cornerstone of the PC revolution, especially once the advent of the Internet kickstarted the brand’s enthusiastic embrace of online sales and customer service. Today, Dell remains a reliable name in PC desktops, laptops, and accessories for work or home, especially with the company’s unique customizable features.
