Take it anywhere
I am loving the Inspiron 11 (3179), purchased to replace an older Dell laptop. It runs really smooth with Windows 10, has touch screen on it's 11.6 inch screen and battery lasts for hours (6+) on light use i.e. browsing the internet. This is a 2 in 1 laptop, and the built-in speaker is surprisingly loud and crisp. It takes a short while to get used to the smaller form factor, but certainly does not lack in performance generally.
Fast power up
No back-lit keyboard
No CD/DVD ROM drive
Not Bad For the Price, but really can't handle Windows 8
First things first. I upgraded the HDD to a Samsung EVO SSG 256gb. Some would say that is over kill. Personally. I find after using SSD, you can't go back. Screen size is nice. Wish it was higher resolution though, but the picture is fine for the size. Battery life, not too sure, about 4 to 5 hours. Had an issue with the mainboard and dell fixed it onsite the day after I reported it. So the warranty is worth it. But I can't get over windows 8. I like the apps, but really don't like the metro look and no start bar. Also, don't like the why it so...rts my applications. Tried to install linux on it. (That did not go down so well, so not linux compatible at this stage). Over all, I like it. And the price was right. Just added Aug 2016. As of 1 month Linux now works straight out of the box. Very happy now.
