Meet the Latest Member of Our Inspiron Family

Today, it is a forgone conclusion that everyone needs access to a personal computer. But there is no one-size-fits-all option. Size, power, style and price are all concerns no matter if you’re a student, parent or anywhere in between. That’s why Dell is committed building something for everyone, to meet a diverse array of computing needs.

With this is mind, at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Dell has unveiled the Inspiron 11 3000 Series laptop, the latest addition to the award-winning Inspiron product family.

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series laptops in red and blue

The notebook debuted on Tuesday night at the Pepcom Digital Experience! trade show, widely attended by over 1,500 press. The laptop sparked immediate interest and sustained buzz, as you can see from the glowing stories published by CNET and Engadget. But it comes as no surprise that Pepcom attendees were wowed: the Inspiron 11 3000 is an affordable, ultraportable laptop wrapped in a visually arresting design. It’s built for the long haul with durable materials and rigorously tested to last for years.

The laptop is turning heads for its accessible price point – citing the notebook’s $199 price tag, Dana Wollman of Engadget was especially impressed by the “sturdy, well-spaced keyboard” and build.

"Whereas some rival machines include only 32GB or so of built-in storage, thereby forcing you to rely on the cloud, the Inspiron 11 has an option for either a 128GB SSD or a 500GB hard drive. For folks with large media collections, then, this might be the better choice," she also noted.

The three vibrant color options – Bali Blue, striking Tango Red and sleek Alpine White – are also generating approval from show goers who want to make a statement with their tech.  

Consumers will appreciate that this new laptop comes with the latest Intel® processors to easily handle today’s software and provide zippy, responsive performance no matter who you are or what you are doing – surfing the web, writing a term paper, streaming videos or doing web chats.

The Inspiron 11 3000 Series also boasts a vibrant HD resolution (1366×768) display that provides crisp, bright image on-screen and is easy to position for clear viewing. HDMI allows you to connect your laptop to an external monitor or big screen TV to view content in up to FHD/1080p resolution for stunning detail. A USB 3.0 port allows for 10x faster file transfer than USB 2.0, saving you time.

Featuring long-lasting battery life – 10 hours! – and Dell Backup and Recovery software, the Inspiron 11 3000 Series ensures your precious pictures, music and files remain safe. With up to 4 GB of memory* and hard drives up to 500 GB, the Inspiron 11 3000 Series is great for multi-taskers who keep several applications open at one time and switch between them.

With Windows 10, the Inspiron 11 3000 Series simplifies your day with voice-operated Web searches, calendaring and media controls.

The Inspiron 11 3000 Series fits people who carry their systems with them like an extension of their phone, and we couldn’t be more excited to debut this new notebook at #CES2016!
