Design and Screen

Unsurprising for a budget laptop, the Inspiron 11 3000 (2015) has a plastic chassis with a matte finish. It features nice rounded edges at both its front and rear. Interestingly, the body is not a fingerprint magnet that will pick smudges easily. The convertible shows off a svelte body at a thickness of just 19.4 millimetres. It is also lightweight at a weight of around 1.4 kg for you to be able to carry it around without any issue. The hybrid sports an 11.6-inch LED backlight touchscreen with HD resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The Truelife display is bright and colourful – brighter than the one on the more expensive HP Pavilion x360 convertible.
