Dell Inspiron 1090 Duo Convertible tablet costs only £319

Dell introduced the Inspiron 1090 Duo as a forward thinking alternative to existing tablet/laptop hybrids on the market. It has now been phased out and is no longer available from Dell.

The device comes with a flip screen that convert the laptop in a tablet and back in a few seconds.

It runs a dual core Intel Atom N550 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, an NM10 chipset, with 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. Other features include a 10.1in display with a 1,280 x 800 pixels capacitive display, Windows 7 Home Premium, Wi-Fi, two USB ports, 1.3-megapixel front facing camera and Office 2010 trial.

The laptop is on sale via Tesco's Ebay outlet and is a refurbished model with one year warranty. To some extent this laptop was a precursor to the new range of tablets based on Windows 8 that will roll out in the market by the end of the year.
