The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 3185 / i3185 is an entry-level 2-in-1 laptop PC with a small 11.6-inch fully-rotatable touch-screen. Starting at around $300, this 3.3-pound plastic-clad convertible offers basic 1366-by-768 display resolution and modest performance for the daily home & office tasks. As a downside, the laptop uses TN screen technology, meaning narrower viewing angles than on IPS-powered panels.

Windows 10 and programs run on either the AMD A6-9220e or probably faster A6-9420e processor (unknown specs). The machine ships with either 4GB or 8GB of system memory and is available with three internal storage options: a 32GB eMMC drive, a 128GB eMMC drive, or a 500GB mechanical hard drive.

The Inspiron 11 3000 3185 / i3185 has stereo speakers, a 720p web-chat camera, 802.11N Wi-Fi wireless, Bluetooth, a USB 3.1 and a USB 2.0 port, HDMI video output port, a combo microphone / headphones audio jack, and a microSD card slot.

There’s no info on battery life. The notebook’s battery capacity of 32 WHr isn’t too generous. Judging by the specs, the battery should provide around 5 hours of run time with normal computer use.

The 2-in-1 is available in 3 colors: grey, red, and white.

    Got a model with a 500 GB HDD from a big box office store. Installed Fedora 29, runs like a champ. Great for basic tasks and easy to carry.
    Note for Fedora 29 users: Suspend works on kernel 4.18.16, but there seems to be a regression in later versions. Add the following to /etc/dnf/dnf.conf under [main] to prevent dnf from upgrading the kernel: exclude=kernel*

    I got the base model with 32GB eMMC storage and A6-9220e processor. Gives acceptable performance but 32GB is too small for Windows 10 – major feature updates simply won’t install even if you add an external hard drive. Even regular updates become a struggle – constantly juggling disk space, removing hibernation file, cleaning up the disk etc. The daily AV updates also make the system sluggish for several minutes.
    But then I installed Xubuntu Linux 18.10 and my laptop was transformed. Much more responsive and I’ve got at least 15GB free. Everything works out of the box (wifi, touchpad, touchscreen, function keys etc) except for tablet mode.
    I give this machine 2.5 stars with Win10 and 4 stars with Linux.

      Are you saying that it still had space for to add in an internal Hard drive or a Solid Drive inside the computer despite it has an eMMC?

      Which I am planning to get an internal solid drive for the new laptop I just had.

      Be very careful about hard drive upgrades. Some models have eMMC soldered to the motherboard with no other connectors so cannot be upgraded.
