Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 11 3162

80.2% Dell Inspiron 11 3162 Subnotebook Review | Notebookcheck
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.
70% Dell Inspiron 11 3000 (3162) Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
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 Review

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.

80% Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series (3162)
Source: PC Mag English
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.

80% A great-value budget laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
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.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.18 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
