Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 11 3162
Enduring. Dell's little netbook adds color to the desk and can offer a very good battery life. At around 250 Euros (~$284), the laptop is on the same price level as its rivals.

Overall, the Inspiron 11 3000 series is a workable pick for tight budgets, but its overall sluggishness prevented us from granting it an Editors' Choice award. It’s decent for the money, but have no illusions: Paltry storage and a lack of snap are part of the price. As long as you have workarounds in mind to these limitations, or at least patience, you should be happy with this little guy in your backpack. And you'll be even happier with what you paid.

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 makes no claims that it can’t back up. It might be small but it does everything you would expect it to. You can run all your Windows apps on it, it comes with Cortana (Siri for Microsoft) and it is at a price you can afford.

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 has two eye-catching features. First is the price: $499 is phenomenally low for a Windows 10 laptop. Second is its colour scheme: you wonder if there’s any “Tango Red” left in Dell’s paint factory, such is the punch of its plastic lid. If it screams too much for your taste, fear not; blue and white finishes are also available.

The Dell Inspiron 11 (3162) is an inexpensive ultraportable laptop with 64-bit Windows and acceptable performance speeds. The feature set is very basic, as you'd expect, but there are no glaring exclusions for a system that costs just $179. The flashy paint job may well be a sticking point for some, and the IdeaPad looks a bit nicer, but if don't mind the design, this is the better-performing system. For these reasons, the Dell Inspiron 11 (3162) is our new Editors' Choice budget ultraportable.

If you're after a budget laptop that'll let you work on the go and last all day, the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 is one of your best options. It's comfortable to type on, has a practical screen and its battery life is great among Windows laptops. Just make sure you're ready for its humble performance first. Windows 10 does feel quite slow, making the Dell Inspiron 11 3000's best-fit use as a typewriter for checking your emails as you nip between free Wi-Fi spots across town. If you can't put up with a bit of lag, consider getting a Chromebook instead.
