3.0 / 5 stars (38 reviews) - GREAT for Linux Mint 18!! Latest review: May 21, 2018 | Model: Dell Inspiron 14 I3452-600BLK
DON'T buy if you are going to use Windows. Works great with a lightweight Linux distro like Lubuntu. Trackpad is problematic in Lubuntu (default tools cannot configure) so only 4 stars. I upgraded to 4gb RAM but only because I already it lying around, not necessary for Lubuntu or Xubuntu. UPDATE: with the 4GB RAM Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon is perfect, wish I had done this sooner! I got a SD Card for my photos and music, the 32gb on-board SSD is more than enough room for system files! The trackpad works great with Mint's default driver/applet so back up to 5 starts!Reviewed by: Jaiyenyen | Read Dell Inspiron 14 3452 reviews...
2 / 5 stars - Overpriced and underpowered, the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 is not the sub-$200 laptop you're looking for.
Review date: July 12, 2017 | Model: Dell Inspiron 14 3000
No matter how you slice it, the $180 Dell Inspiron 14 3000 is simply not a smart sub-$200 laptop choice. While it has some redeeming qualities -- like 9 hours of battery life, decent speakers and a relatively fast flash drive -- the laptop is not outstanding in any way. Its outdated Wi-Fi is annoying, and its lack of RAM impedes its performance, among other issues. Worst of all, the Inspiron 14 3000 is overpriced compared to its Windows 10 rivals. Both the HP Stream 11 and the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-14 include a free subscription to Office 365 in a machine that's $200 or less, but you'd have to drop $230 to get the same from Dell. If you're looking for the best 14-inch screen or keyboard on a laptop in this price range, then the $195 Lenovo Ideapad 100S-14 is a no-brainer. For the best performance and sound quality, you can't go wrong with the $200 HP Stream 11. And if you want to save some money and don't mind the simplicity of Chrome OS, the $179 Samsung Chromebook 3 is the way to go. No matter which system you choose, just avoid the $180 Dell Inspiron 14 3000.Reviewed by: Gloria Sin | Read full review...
3.5 / 5 stars - For under $300, the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 offers capable performance and loud audio in a plain but solid chassis Review date: March 4, 2016 | Model: Dell Inspiron 3452
If you're looking for a sub-$300 notebook with reasonable performance, solid battery life and capable audio, the Inspiron 14 3000 delivers. Unfortunately, the laptop makes some compromises in the form of a dim display and shallow keyboard. The Acer Aspire One Cloudbook offers a brighter screen and longer battery life for $30 less, but it has a tiny, 32GB storage drive and an Intel Atom processor that offers less-than-mainstream performance. Overall, if you want to get acceptable performance on a very tight budget, the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 is a good option.Reviewed by: Henry T. Casey | Read full review...
