Summary: Dell's 2-in-1 is an inexpensive proposition if you're after a dual-purpose device. It's easy to use it as a tablet, just by tilting the screen all the way back around the unit, and it does the job well enough as a laptop.
Excerpt: Dell announced a couple of new laptops at Computex 2014 and Pocket-lint managed to track down the Inspiron 11-inch and get a play with it. The Inspiron 11 3000 is a 2-in-1 hinged device - much like the Lenovo Yoga.
