Design

We are talking about a new product – a laptop Dell Inspiron 11 3000.

The manufacturer used glossy plastic, shiny under a bright light to decorate the top cover, so the device looks incredibly attractive out of the box. This is a plus. The downside is that, like all glossy devices, the laptop is instantly covered with fingerprints. And if you do not handle it very carefully, it will also show clearly visible scratches. So the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 case is a must-have.

The inner panels, including the bezel around the screen, are made of matte, slightly rough to the touch plastic. Everything here is much more practical and no less beautiful. Thanks to this solution, if you carry the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 in a case, you can preserve its beauty for a long time.

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 is compact even by the standards of other 11-inch laptops. It has a rather narrow frame around the screen, which, in fact, made it possible to make it so. Weight with battery – only 1.2 kg. You can work on the run, on the go, or just holding your laptop in your hands.

Despite the small size of the laptop, the manufacturer managed to install in it a comfortable keyboard with keys that are not cut in size. Naturally, there can be no talk of nomad, but everything else is there. And even the arrows are highlighted in a separate block, which gives me an attack of emotion, admiration and love for Dell in general and the Inspiron 11 3000 in particular.

At the same time, the keyboard has one more plus – protection from moisture.

The location of the power button is somewhat unusual – to the right of the keyboard. To protect it from accidental presses and actuation, the key is made concave – you definitely can’t touch it just like that, waving your fingers while typing.

Another small but significant plus is the location of the speakers above the keyboard, and not on the bottom panel. Thanks to this, the baby Dell Inspiron 11 3000 delivers pleasant sound quality and volume. It is possible that there is also a merit here and technology Waves MaxxAudio Pro, which improves the elaboration of sound at the software level.

Let’s move on from the sound to the picture. Dell Inspiron 11 3000 has no problems here either. High-quality rich gamma, resolution – typical for compact mid-range notebooks, HD 1366×768 pixels. Plus – a matte finish.

This laptop does not have solid grilles for air outlet (and not solid ones either), but surprisingly, even with a strong test load, it does not heat up to noticeable values.

But what Dell Inspiron 11 3000 does not have is the ability to open it wide: 160-170 degrees, and that’s it. Personally, it was convenient for me to work with him at the table, but not on my knees.
