The Dell Inspiron DUO is a computer that can be used as a tablet or a netbook. But while old-school convertible laptops had swivels that allowed you to twist the screen and fold it down over the keyboard, the Duo has something different: A display that rotates inside the screen bezel.
Say you’re using the DUO in laptop mode and you want to convert it to tablet mode. Just push the screen back 180 degrees and then close the lid like you would if you were turning off the computer. Now you have a tablet. Want to convert back to laptop mode? Just open the lid and push the screen.
The DUO has a 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 dual core processor and runs Windows 7.
Dell showed off the Inspiron DUO at an Intel event in September, but the company hasn’t announced a launch date or pricing yet. But it looks like we won’t have to wait too much longer. The company posted a teaser video for the Inspiron DUO on YouTube. You can check it out after the break.
