Description

Case & Connectivity

The Inspiron’s plastic casing is available in three colors: Bali Blue, Alpine White and Tango Red. We were provided with the red model. The lid’s back and the base unit’s sides are made of glossy plastic. The other parts have matte surfaces. The little laptop does not exhibit any manufacturing flaws. It is similar in terms of stiffness. Only the base unit could be a bit stiffer for our taste. The laptop does not have a maintenance hatch. That is, however, tolerable since neither the working memory nor the hard drive can be replaced; both components are soldered. The battery is not removable.

The Inspiron only sports a limited variety of interfaces. The most necessary ports are installed at the rear on both sides. Thus, cables do not obstruct the wrist rest.

Windows 10 Home (64-bit) operating system is preloaded. A recovery DVD is not included. Laptop buyers additionally get a one-year license for McAfee LiveSafe Internet Security.

Input Devices

The Inspiron is furnished with an unlit chiclet keyboard. The flat, lightly roughened keys have a medium drop and clear pressure point. The keyboard yielded slightly when typing on it, but that was not annoying. Dell delivers an overall decent keyboard here. The laptop’s multi-touch ClickPad has a surface area of approximately 10 x 5.5 cm, which provides plenty of room for gesture control. The pad’s very lightly roughened surface does not stop the fingers from gliding. The pad has a short drop and clear pressure point.

Performance

The Inspiron 11-3162 is an 11.6-inch Windows netbook. Its computing power is enough for basic applications from the office and Internet fields. Our review sample is priced at around 250 Euros (~$284). Dell’s shop did not list any other configurations at test time. However, there are indications of models with 4 GB of working memory and/or a 500 GB hard drive.

 

Processor

One of the weakest dual-cores that Intel currently has to offer is inside the Inspiron in the form of the Celeron N3050 (Braswell). Consequently, the little laptop’s application field as a browsing machine and typewriter is foreordained. The processor’s computing power is enough for simple office and Internet applications. With its TDP of 6 watts, the CPU is one of the frugal models and can be cooled passively. The Celeron clocks at a base speed of 1.6 GHz, which can be boosted to 2.16 GHz. The maximum speed is achieved in both AC and battery modes.
