Dell Inspiron 11 3000 review

 

Is this laptop-tablet hybrid your future study buddy?

Sleek, symmetrical design ; Powerful hardware for price

Awkward mode switching ; Device slips in tent mode ; Not super affordable

This hybrid laptop might be aimed at students, but at just under 500 big ones, would their money be better spent elsewhere?

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series review - fun, budget Windows

 

The Dell Inspiron 11 is a well-built budget laptop but it's seriously let down by its terrible screen

However, the Inspiron 11 faces stiff competition from the HP Stream 11 , which also has a fun design but a much better display. As a result, my top choice for a first laptop would have to be the Stream 11, but if you're after something for office...

Dell's Inspiron 11 3000 does the 2-in-1 thing on the cheap and does it well

 

For its sub-$500 price, this 11-inch hybrid makes up for in mobility and battery life what it lacks in performance.

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 gives you the flexibility of a laptop and tablet in one ultraportable package at an affordable price. It has a long battery life, it looks good, and feels like it's solidly built. Plus, you can easily open it and upgrade...

The lower-end components limit performance. There are few configuration options, so if you want more than 4GB of memory or an SSD, you're on your own. The bottom can get uncomfortably hot.

With the Inspiron 11 3000, Dell delivers an everyday ultraportable hybrid with an excellent battery life at a good price.

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series (2017) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 can double up as a laptop or a tablet, thanks to a hinge that lets the screen fold flat against the base. Last time we looked at this particular series we liked the design but not the weight or the woeful battery...

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series (convertible) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 series is a tiny 11-inch convertible laptop designed for basic use on the go. And the price is good, too. We took a first look at the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 to see whether it's worthy of a place on your laptop shortlist.

The Inspiron series of laptops is aimed at consumers with a low budget and only basic computing requirements - to load programs relatively quickly, be easy to use and not have a screen that you have to squint to see clearly. We tested the Dell Inspiron...

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series convertible laptop

 

Turn this little Dell from a laptop into a tablet, but don't expect fast performance from its Celeron CPU

IPS screen ; Dual-band, 802.11ac Wi-Fi ; Full-sized HDMI port ; Full-sized SD card slot

Sluggish performance at times ; Touchpad could be better ; Touchscreen sometimes erratic

Dell's 2-in-1 is an inexpensive proposition if you're after a dual-purpose device. It's easy to use it as a tablet, just by tilting the screen all the way back around the unit, and it does the job well enough as a laptop. Just don't expect a lot of...

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 (3179)

 

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 is a convertible-hybrid laptop that has a better processor and subsequently higher performance than rivals, but makes a few compromises to meet its relatively inexpensive price.

Core m3 processor. Includes HDMI port. Touch screen. Attractive design.

No 5GHz Wi-Fi. Slow 5,400rpm hard drive. 1,366-by-768 resolution screen. Relatively short battery life.

The convertible Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 is inexpensive, has a decent amount of performance for a budget system, and is a good value overall. However, the Lenovo Yoga 710 (11") holds on to its top spot thanks to its higher-resolution screen,...
