My Experience at Melba's

At the moment, the 14 7000 series is available in three fixed configurations starting at $800 (£599, AU $1,300; configurations vary by region ). That's $50 less than the entry model we tested last year, but Dell used a 1,366x768-pixel resolution touch display this time around instead of the 1,920x1,080 display we got last time. Some tutorials

The base model also has a newer Intel Core i5-4210U processo, 6GB of memory, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400, and a 500GB 5,400rpm hard drive. Pony up $200 more and get the full HD touch display, 2GB more of RAM, and a dual-core Core i7-4510U CPU. Throw in another $50 on top of that and Dell puts in a 32GB mSATA SSD to accompany the 500GB hard drive (which is the model tested here).

These are all good prices for what you're getting. However, you can't adjust the configurations at all. So if you wanted to pay a little extra for just the 1080p screen, or a faster processor, or more memory you can't: you'll have to get them all for an additional $200.

What Others Say About Melba's

Melba's and the generous people who run it are no strangers to celebrity. In early February 2022 they were featured on WDSU News. Story by anchor Randi Rousseau.

Hello Indies! I am a former special education teacher of over 20 years, and now a full-time children's writer, researcher, and freelance editor. My newest picture book, The Oldest Student: How Mary Walker Learned to Read (Random House) debuted as the No. 1 Picture Book in Women's Biographies and Children's American History. It has since won the 2022 Texas Bluebonnet Award, the 2022 Rhode Island Children's Book Award, the 2021 SCBWI Crystal Kite, the 2022 Comstock Award, and the 2022 Ann Izard Award. It has received STARRED REVIEWS from Kirkus, Booklist, Publisher's Weekly and School Library Journal, and received a great review by The Wall Street Journal. My first picture book, Hammering for Freedom: The William Lewis Story (Lee and Low) debuted on September 24, 2018. It is a School Library Journal selection and received positive Kirkus and Horn Book reviews. I penned African Americans of Chattanooga: A History of Unsung Heroes, and I earned the 2014 SCBWI Letter of Merit for an unpublished multicultural novel. I am the author of several educational books for teens, and I occasionally review books for The New York Journal of Books. Thanks for visiting!
