The Inspiron 11 40002-in-1 looks beautiful at  a first closer look and represents one of the favorites of those who are looking to buy a hybrid tablet that is inexpensive, yet offers value for money. This is a lightweight computer with a cobalt shade that makes it look stunning. The main goal for this2-in-1 is to combine portability and improvised tablet functionality. Therefore, keeping it small is important. It is 0.6 by 11.5 by 7.75 inches (HWD) and weighs 2.5 pounds, making a small footprint that is very easy to carry.

Sadly, you must keep your expectations at the level of its price, because this isn’t a premium laptop, but rather one that is meant to be practical and nice to use. The product feels good for the cost, but it is obviously a budget project. The keyboard may be the cheapest thing to feel, with a textured, plastic finish and a low key flow. The touchpad is perfectly good, a nice surprise because often budget laptops are small.


Display and Audio

One of the most remarkable concerns are related to the display. The 11.6-inch screen is not very good by itself, but again, because the device’s cost, it isn’t something that you would not expect. The screen is slightly dull, 720p with touch, though the specs do it all with “HD.” Although technical, “HD” 720p is not the “full HD” 1080p experience. It’s not quite smooth but the consistent sharpness of a total HD screen is lacking, which could be even more disturbing at times and especially if you are looking for crisp images. It is reasonable enough on such a cost-effective device that has a small-sized screen, but you know it’s not going to impress you with its brightness. If you set the expectations right, you will probably get to like it.

What is less appropriate and where the problem lies is a physical deficiency that can be immediately noticed, especially if you have a trained eye and you can detect laws easily. The screen image visibly rips on the left and right sides by touching the edges of the display, and sometimes also moving and disconnecting the system. Pressing just marginally on the surface of the screen (and again it is a tactile screen, so you will) or on the lid back of the screen creates interference. Therefore, you must really know that it is important to treat it with care due to its high sensitivity. This looks like the LCD warp itself, like the result of poking a non-touch display.

At least the 2-in-1 feature allows you to easily convert the system from standard laptop mode into a tablet. The double hinges appear to be solid and capable of keep ingthe panel firmly in place when the screen is upright and rotated. It is not too difficult to rotate the display, however, and turning the screen in tablet mode is an easy task.

The speaker strip on top of the keyboard deck of the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 provided a huge amount of volume, filling a large conference room with clear sound. The bass behaved well, synths came through accurately and vocals were loud and crispy.

Performance and battery life

Built with an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor and 4 GB of RAM, the Del Inspiron 11 3000 2-in-1 configuration provides enough speed for reasonable multitasking. With its overall performance of Geekbench 3, the Inspiron 11 30002-in-1, has obtained a respectable score, which scored over the Celeron N3050 Transformer Book Flip TP200 as well as the Atom CPU-enabled Ideapad Miix 310.

In 3 minutes and 5 seconds Inspiron 11’s 500 GB, 5,400 rpm hard drive copied 4,97 GB of multimedia files, at a good speed. The trails behind the 3 surface (34.7 MBps), the 310 Ideapad Miix (36.7 MBps), the TP200SA Transformer Flip book (34.15 MBps) and the 10 E Aspire Switch (41.7 MBps). The Inspiron 11 took 6 minutes and 16 seconds to finish our OpenOffice macro test, which coincides with 20,000 names. The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 2-in-1’s battery will not make you proud, as it doesn’t last very long. During our battery test it only lasted about 5 hours and 30 minutes before its power was drained. Another thing to consider is that if you use the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 in your lap for extended periods, you’ll definitely feel the heat. So, if you consider buying it, you should think about buying a cooler, as well, or just use it on regular surfaces. The underside of the hybrid hit 105.5 degrees Fahrenheit after streaming HD video for 15 minutes. Once our 95 degree comfort level collapsed the temperature, its touch pad (81 degrees) and keyboard (94 degrees) did not.
