The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 3180 / i3180 is an extremely cheap mini-laptop, starting at only $200. The plastic-clad 3-pound ultraportable has an 11.6-inch display with budget-class 1366-by-768-pixel resolution and without IPS wide viewing angles nor touchscreen functionality. For interaction with pre-installed Windows 10 OS and programs, you can use the notebook’s chiclet-style keyboard without backlight and spacious multi-touch trackpad.
Unlike similar laptops which usually feature Intel’s Celeron processors, the Inspiron 11 3000 3180 / i3180 has the AMD E2-9000e or A6-9220e chips from the same entry-level CPU category. The energy-efficient dual-core E2-9000e and A6-9220e are good only for non-demanding PC tasks. They can serve well for the routine chores like web surfing, emails, work in text processing and spreadsheet programs, or multimedia playback. The chips are paired with 4 Gigabytes of system memory, which is a satisfactory capacity for moderate multi-tasking. The weakest specs point of the notebook is its small internal eMMC storage capacity – only 32GB. The good news is that you can expand storage space by using laptop’s built-in microSD media card reader.
The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 3180 / i3180 has a relatively small battery of 32 WHr. But, given the small display size and low power consumption of the CPU, the battery life shouldn’t be terrible. Based on the specs, one can assume the battery can last at least around 5 hours on a charge, with mild computing load and screen brightness.
Furthermore, the laptop has stereo speakers, a 720p HD video camera, older-generation 802.11N Wi-Fi wireless, a USB 3.1 and a USB 2.0 port, HDMI video out port, combo microphone / headphones jack, microSD reader, and Bluetooth.
