Dell reveals solid looking Inspiron 11 3000 budget laptop, priced at $199

Dell have revealed their 2016 contender for the entry level laptop market. Priced to compete at just $199 the Inspiron 11 3000 appears to be a solid offering for those on a budget.

While it is easy enough to find cheap laptops, it’s not always so easy to find something well built. Proving it isn’t all about the high end at CES, Dell have revealed their latest budget laptop. Designed and priced to compete at the low end with machines such as the HP Stream, Dell appears eager to recapture the budget laptop market.

The Dell Inspiron packs in a 1366 x 768 11” screen, 2GB RAM and 32GB Solid state storage. Added to that the machine sports a couple of USB sockets 1x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0, a full size HDMI out,SD Card slot, a chiclet style keyboard and good sized trackpad.

From the press release:

  • A vibrant HD resolution (1366x768) display that provides crisp, bright image on-screen and is easy to position for clear viewing;
  • HDMI to allow for a connection to an external monitor or big screen TV to view content in up to FHD/1080p resolution for stunning detail;
  • A USB 3.0 port to allow for 10x faster file transfer than USB 2.0;
  • With 2GB of memory and 32GB eMMC
  • A range of colour options, including vibrant Bali Blue, striking Tango Red and sleek Alpine White.

It will be available on dell.com from January 28th, starting at £179

Whilst these specs aren’t going to set the world on fire, the whole package does appear to be well built and that should be a key differentiator. Dell are going to offer versions of this machine with a quad core CPU, 4GB memory and either a 128GB SSD or 500GB HDD.
