Engadget notes that the base model will start at $549 so the price is right for the most part. The risk is that this device, which weighs in at 4.5 pound, doesn't play laptop or tablet well.

The Inspiron duo is your run of the mill netbook, which will be too small for my hands anyway. Flip the screen and you have a tablet. From there, Dell takes over the user interface.
In a blog, Microsoft did its own take and noted the screen is unique. Microsoft gushes: "Hands down, the duo is one of the best convertible devices on the market."
