The Dell Inspiron 15 3000 is designed with interesting texture but a boring color scheme. Dell constructed the back lid, keyboard deck and base using a textured black plastic, which feels smooth to the touch but is very flexible. The edges of both the lid and the base have a glossy black casing, which breaks up the design but creates some rough edges where the two materials
meet. The Inspiron 15 3000 measures 14.96 x 10.25 x 0.99 inches and weighs a reasonable 4.88 pounds. On the left side of the laptop, there's
a charging port (the charging indicator light is on the front edge), an exhaust vent, an HDMI connector, a USB 3.0 port and an SD card slot. On the right, you'll find a Kensington lock, a CD/DVD combo drive, two USB 2.0 ports and the headphone jack. On the inside of the frame, there's a webcam
centered on the top bezel, as well as a power button on the upper-right portion of the deck. Notably, the bottom houses the laptop's only speaker, as well as an array of vents and a removable battery with a sliding-lock mechanism. The deck and the screen on the Inspiron 15 3000 have moderately large bezels, which appear even larger because of the laptop's monochromatic appearance. The device's dual hinges felt sturdy when I opened and closed the lid, and I didn't hear any creaking when adjusting the display. At $349, the Acer Aspire E 15
is a much better option because of its vivid full-HD display, exceptional battery life and better overall performance. Even the Asus VivoBook E403SA -- with its longer-lasting battery, USB Type-C charging and premium metallic build -- would be a better option at the slightly higher price of $399.
The device spots a 15.6-inch display and has a resolution of only 1366 x 768,emitting 170 nits of brightness And producing 71.4 percent of the color gamut. And The Inspiron 15 3000 has an integrated Intel HD Graphics 405 chip that comes with the Pentium N3710
KEYBOARD AND TRACKPAD
The keyboard is excellent for a keyboard of a laptop. It has a 1.02 millimeters of key travel. The keys on the Inspiron 15 3000 feature an attractive sans-serif font with white lettering that stands out nicely against the gray and black keyboard deck. The keys are slightly recessed from the deck, and Dell claims that the keyboard is splash- resistant.
PERFORMANCE AND BATTERY LIFE
Equipped with an Intel Pentium N3710 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive, the laptop is good for multiprocessing And lasts for 7 hours.
Dell includes a host of preloaded software -- such as the CyberLink Media Suite and a 12-month McAfee Antivirus subscription -- but other software utilities are more useful, Dell's Support Assist organizes a lot of service information
in one location and serves as a hub for downloading drivers and firmware updates. During my time with the laptop, it prompted me multiple times to install updates, though it never restarted without my permission.
