Dell announces new Inspiron notebooks

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 is the first notebook. The device comes with an 11-inch display that works at 1366 x 768 pixels and that can be detached which turns the Inspiron 11 3000 into a tablet. The device also includes a USB 3.0 port and a microSD card slot but this is all we know about it.
