Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 11 3179

This 11.6-inch 2-in-1 provides everything that a casual user would need. It’s fast and reliable, although it won’t be the first choice in certain departments. Actually, in many cases you won’t be impressed by the Inspiron 11 3179. First of all – build quality. It looks good and shiny, especially in a white dress but when you take in account that Dell used only plastic, the picture starts to get less rosy. All the bright and shine of the surface is going to disappear in no time, as it is super scratchable.

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, speedy SSD storage, and extra hours of battery life, even with a price tag that's $200 higher. If you need to stay under $500, alternatives include chromebooks like the Samsung Chromebook Plus and the Dell Chromebook 3189 Education 2-in-1, or the Windows-based Asus Transformer Mini.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
