Dell Inspiron 14 3000 Review

 

Overpriced and underpowered, the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 is not the sub-$200 laptop you're looking for.

Long battery life; Waves MaxxAudio-enhanced speakers; Stays cool

Dim screen; Shallow keyboard; Cover flexes; Doesn't support 802.11ac Wi-Fi

So far so good

 

When I first received my new PC I could not get it to start up. Tech support was super helpful but all the things we tried were not effective in getting the PC to start up. I sent the computer back to Dell and they repaired it. Now it is working fine.
