The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 i3158-3275SLV is a bestselling 2015 11.6-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its responsive touchscreen, sturdy build, long battery life and good performance. However, its touchpad is sometimes unresponsive and the included SSD storage is smaller than the standard Hard Drive space you could get at this price. All in all, the Inspiron 11 3000 i3158-3275SLV is a highly portable 2-in-1 laptop with reasonably powerful hardware for everyday use.
With the current demand for portability as well as versatility many manufacturers are turning toward 2-in-1 or convertible devices. Dell’s answer is the Inspiron 11 3000, a super lightweight device that combines the power of a laptop with the portability of a tablet. The long lasting battery will keep you going for over eight hours and the inclusion of a full size HDMI port is perfect for those boardroom presentations.
While only having a pentium processor does mean multitasking isn’t as smooth as other devices on the market, the 4GB of RAM and 500GB of storage will do the job for most basic applications. Windows 10 also helps with the low spec of this machine as its far lighter on resources than its predecessor. Dell have included a 720P webcam which is great for Skype video conferencing and the Waves MaxxAudio® Pro processing means clear immersive sound. This device is mainly catered toward a student or business professional and should definitely be on your list if you are on the hunt for a bargain all-round laptop for home or the office.
