This convertible mini-laptop that doubles as table is very well built. When you take it in hands you instantly feel that Dell made a good product. For me it has somewhat Mac-style look and feel. Competition is mainly Lenovo Yoga, its larger cousin Dell Inspirion 13 7000 series 2 in 1, and Dell XPS 12. Dell XPS 12 is $300 more than this Dell Inspiron 2 in 1. But but has 128SD and the flip spin screen. So you do not expose keyboard when you use it in tablet mode.
Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series is a recipient of PC Magazine Editors’ Choice 2014 award ( pcmag.com )
"The Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 will get you through a typical work day, and its battery life is exceptional for a convertible-hybrid laptop.”
... ... ...
The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 (3147) proves that you don't have to endure a stripped-down laptop when you only have $450 to spend. It combines a well-designed flipping hinge with all-day battery life and a relatively full feature set. All this earns the Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 our first Editors' Choice for entry-level, convertible-hybrid laptops.
Compared to the Lenovo Yoga, Dell has large 11.6 inch screen and generally is a better deal as it costs less and has an extra USB port, a standard HDMI cable port (vs. the mini port on the Yoga) and a standard power port (vs. the proprietary port on the Yoga).
Commonly sold for around $400. But Staples used to have a great deal on this laptop - $150 off making it $349.99 with free shipping. This gives you the idea of low-high price range for this convertible laptop.
This laptop is way more versatile and useful that a typical tablet in this price range or even twice more expensive Microsoft Surface Pro (althouth Dell Inspirion 13 7000 series 2 in 1 isa a more fair competition for Surface).

What are the terms of the Dell warranty that comes with this computer? Is accidental damage included? Is premium support included?

There is also unlimited parts replacement and free labor. It does not come with Accidental damage and premium support. What is different when directly purchasing from dell: The 90 day Premium Phone Support -- It offers basic software how to, installation and setup which includes installed device assistance. (I don't know how many people will need such help, but it is there) In-Home servicing --> If after remote diagnostics, if they determine technical servicing is required, a technician will come to your place in 24 hours and fix it for you, or take it for service. If you purchase from Amazon, you would have to ship it to DELL instead. All shipping will be pre-paid by Dell. You need to print out a shipping label from DELL, pretty much similar to what you do for Amazon returns. Optional DELL Accidental damage protection--> It is available only at the point of sale, when you buy directly from Dell.com or a Dell direct store. So, you cannot purchase it separately, like after buying laptop from Amazon. But there are other accidental damage protection plans that you can buy from Amazon, like Square Trade Protection http://www.amazon.com/SquareTrade-Computer-Accident-Protection-500-600/dp/B002I01TVO. Dell is offering a "4 year accidental damage protection for the price of 3" for a limited time. So, I'd advice to compare your total bill amount including taxes, on both Amazon and Dell, if you plan to buy the accidental plan. I assume it would still be cheaper over here. see less

Best value convertible on the market,
John Witt - See all my reviewsGrant
Awesome - It's my favorite go-to machine,
December 3, 2014
I love this laptop / tablet. This 2 in 1 was a perfect fit for me. At first, I was worried about it being too slow, however, after uninstalling all the Dell bloatware it is actually pretty darn fast and reliable. It's the perfect size for being a tablet and computer. It's light weight and easy to use in the field for troubleshooting IT issues. I recommend purchasing a USB to Ethernet adapter. It only has a wireless adapter. I love the battery life. I usually see about 2 hours on my laptop and get between 4 - 6 hours on this machine easy.
Now I'm going to go against the gain and admit I love Windows 8.1. I'm not sure why it gets a bad rap. It's perfect for tablet-like features and apps but also great in a production environment.
Install the Windows 8 RSAT tools and it's great for managing remote Windows 2012 servers and Hyper-v VMs.
The Windows store needs some help but I can't blame that on this computer. I wish Amazon would release an Instant Video app. But since this is a full computer I can watch it through a web browser until one (if ever) is released. I've used it to stream DVD and Blu-ray MKVs across the network with no stuttering. I get over 10Mbps which is OK for wireless N.
Honestly, it's hard to say anything bad about this unit. If I had to complain just to complain, the touchpad seems a little sensitive when I'm trying to type. The cursor jumps around a bit when I don't expect it to. I'm learning to pick up my thumbs (when I type) and it doesn't happen as much. Other than that, this machine is great. I have no complaints.Great laptop for the price. July 14, 2014An Acquired Taste
This laptop is pretty fantastic in all categories, aside from a few cons here and there.
The metal shell of the laptop really makes it look more expensive than it is and the surface is virtually fingerprint free.
The screen is bright and vivid and the touch screen is responsive. Although after a while finger prints build up, but that is to be expected. The screen is a little oddly placed as it has a different distance from the top edge as it does from the sides and bottom edge. I'm not sure why they didn't center the screen but you shouldn't have a problem unless you have ocd.
It also folds flawlessly when you want to use it as a tablet and is perfect when using it while laying down as you can prop it up at 270 degrees. The hinges are very sturdy and at first, I was skeptical on how well they would hold up if you constantly converting from a laptop to a tablet, but I think they will hold up just fine.
A downside in the design is that when using it as a tablet or at 270 degrees, the screen partly covers the exhaust vent so it doesn't efficiently remove the heat. It also heats up the screen where it covers the vent. This may become a problem if you're watching a movie in tablet mode as it might overheat due to the strain on the processor and lack of ventilation.
The keyboard feels large even though it is smaller than standard. There is also no bend in the chassis whatsoever when pushing hard on the keys.
The touchpad is grainy to the touch but is very responsive. The left and right click on the other hand have to travel a fairly far distance before they actually click. It will definitely take a little getting used to.
The speakers are of good quality and can actually play very loud for a small laptop.
The speed of the laptop is a little slow, but I'm used to a desktop with 10gb of ram and an i7, so I'm probably a little biased but I intend to upgrade the hard drive to an ssd and maybe add larger ram to give a boost.
All-in-all, this is a very well made laptop and with this price you really can't go wrong. If you're on the fence I would say this is a no-brainer.
I will update if I come across any problems.A little bundle of joy--an ultimate around-the-house media consumption machine, August 20, 2014
This laptop is an amazing value. As soon as you remove it from the box, you can tell that build quality is superb, especially for this price point. The shell appears to be some lightweight metal alloy, thought it may be some plastic-metal concoction. At any rate, it feels durable and strong. I have owned much more expensive Dells in the past that have felt much cheaper in their construction. For this particular computer I was worried about the integrity of the hinges, as I plan to use it in all positions and switch between them frequently, but after a few weeks they still inspire confidence (the hinges themselves are made of an even sturdier metal).
This laptop is reasonably fast for everyday uses and feels very smooth for some more advanced graphical consumption (I use it to read 100MB+ graphics-heavy PDFs, and it looks brilliant).
I upgraded from the Acer C720 Chromebook, a brilliant little machine in its own right, but I wanted a more fully-functional machine. The Chromebook was a bit faster for web browsing, but only slightly and of course they can't by design do much else.
It comes with Windows 8.1, which is a bit of an adjustment from Windows 7, but take a deep breath and get through the transition period. I have to admit that after 3+ years of using Windows 7, I was pretty stressed in my first few days with Windows 8.1, but after a week of trial and error, and looking up a few things, I feel at home again.
I don't want to belabor my impressions of Windows 8, since almost all PCs come with Windows 8 now, but I will mention that this computer ships with the most recent updates (as of August 2014), which limits the amount of online updating that has to be done on first bootup.
For me, mobility and flexibility were keys to purchasing this laptop. This is an around-the-house laptop, capable of doing all of my day-to-day computing tasks, mostly consumption of reading material online or in images, movies, PDFs etc. It handles these tasks brilliantly, and the ability to flip the screen into tablet mode is wonderful for reading and general consumption. For distracted web browsing I still prefer to use a keyboard, but if I know I'm going to spend 20 minutes all on the New York Times website reading articles, I will use it in tablet mode.
It gets a little bit warm, but only noticeably so when watching video or playing games. The vent is at the joint between base and screen, which points away from the user in laptop mode, and can be oriented to face away in tablet mode as well (as you can flip the screen in any direction in tablet mode and your content will rotate automatically).
The keyboard takes a little getting used to, but this is the case with any keyboard. This review is the most I've typed on it in one go, and I'm finding that my fingers have adjusted nicely. They keys have a good resistance even for a low profile keyboard, and they don't get in the way when the laptop is flipped into tablet mode.
The battery life is great. I haven't used it past halfway (and to ensure the longevity of modern day Lithium-Ion batteries, you shouldn't), and I get about 3 hrs on a 50% charge. (extrapolate to 6 hrs on a full charge, but again you really shouldn't fully drain a LI battery, which I know is counter to what you were told a decade ago about batteries, but the composition of batteries has changed since then).
The last key to mobility would be installing a solid state drive. At first I thought I would do this immediately because I couldn't bear the thought of going back to a spinning drive. But actually, after using it for a while, I hardly notice it. I will still probably upgrade eventually, but maybe once the Dell warranty has expired (12-15 months, depending on where you read). To find your Windows 8.1 serial number for installation on a new drive, use the free utility Belarc Advisor.
Not much else to say--only good surprises here.

Chris Wuchte (Baton Rouge, LA USA) - See all my reviews (REAL NAME)A great laptop/tablet at a great price, December 3, 2014A COMPREHENSIVE review: Only buy it if you're an experienced troubleshooter.,
This review is from: Dell Inspiron i3147-3750sLV 11.6-Inch 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop (Personal Computers)
A great laptop/tablet at a great price.
As someone who's gotten so spoiled by the touchscreens on my smaller devices that I actually find myself touching non-touch screens out of force of habit, getting a laptop with touch capability was essential. I didn't want to spend more than $500, and this actually came in $100 under that.
Sure, for more money you can get a faster laptop, but this one so far runs all the basics, plus even games like Civilization IV, perfectly well. Video is smooth. I've yet to throw enough at it to make it crash or slow down.
It feels durable, particularly the hinges, which were of most concern. After gingerly flipping from laptop to tablet mode for the first week, I realized I didn't need to be so sensitive - they're pretty solid, and seem like they'll last the life of the laptop.
Since it folds rather than detaches, the full tablet mode is a little clunky. I notice this especially when I read comics on it - it's a little heavy, and feeling the keyboard on my hand or lap is a little odd. It's also pretty easy to bump the button in the center of the screen that flips everything back to the home screen. But for other things, you can easily use the touch screen at another angle and rest it on a table or your lap.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, sturdy, portable laptop with a touchscreen.
October 29, 2014A. Vaamonde "Dave" (Charlottesville, VA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)from: Dell Inspiron i3147-3750sLV 11.6-Inch 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop (Personal Computers)An an honest review from someone looking at a budget, silm, and 2 in 1 laptop.,
Intro: I am a graduate student in need of a computer I can carry in between my job, classes, and travel destinations. Due to the nature of my schedule. I was in need of a computer: 1) small enough I could store in my backpack/briefcase. 2) Light enough that it wouldn't feel uncomfortable to drag around like my 15.6" Dell laptop. 3) Compact and versatile enough to open up on an airplane/train and get serious work done-sometimes requiring split screens with MS Office and hand drawing supply and demand graphs using touch input. 4) LOOONNG Battery life. 5) Lastly. I was in need of a computer study enough to withstand moderate the moderate abuse inflicted by a busy work-student-traveler lifestyle.
Initial thoughts: I knew that Dell "skimped" a bit with the choice of components of this laptop. Certainty, the specs could be better… but I get it, Dell was trying to offer a good value for the price. I ended up choosing to buy this laptop over the Lenovo competitor because of its ability to be easily upgraded. I bought a Kingston 250Gb SSD with it, and I intend on buying an 8Gb RAM upgrade soon
OUT OF THE BOX: the mechanical 500 GB hard drive slows down the computer to the point of annoyance. I wasn't satisfied with a 20second boot speed. When running a browser, Office, Evernote, and Spotify expect a considerable amount of lag.
Upgrade #1: Having a mechanical hard drive in a computer that is supposed to be a versatile 2-in-1 just doesn't make sense. There aren't many tablets out there that have mechanical hard drives. The moving, flipping, jerking, and tossing will eventually wear down the mechanical hard drive to the point of failure. I added the 250 GB SSD very easily by simply removing the back cover. Boot speed went down to 9 seconds. I experience no lag when running Chrome, Office, Evernote, and Spotify. The battery life went up significantly to an average of 8hrs. It's also worth mentioning that the laptop is completely silent at this point…
The rest of the laptop:
KEYBOAD/MOUSE/ TOUCH INPUT: I see a lot of people have complained about the keyboard and trackpad. In my experience, the keyboard feels solid and doesn't exhibit much flex. The trackpad is less sturdy than the keyboard and is not very fun to click into. I also increased the palm rejection setting and it doesn't bother me when I'm typing/drawing on it. I experienced a faulty touchscreen from the start. When I flipped the hinges into "tablet mode" the touch screen would no longer work. I sent it back and got a replacement. The touch screen now works fine.
Once again, you have to be ready to do a bit of trouble shooting with this computer.
SOUND: amazing sound for the price. Every time I play music from Spotify my friends comment "wow that's louder than my Mac."
SCREEN/HDMI: vivid colors, great contrast rate, for an 11.6 inch screen, I am pleased. I always have the brightness all the way up and I don't experience any problems. HDMI can be a little funny to configure at once but I finally got it to adjust to my 22" dell monitor.
Conclusion: buy it if you're competent with computer troubleshooting. The hardware may be faulty due to the lack of quality testing from Dell.
I highly recommend upgrading the hard drive to an SSD if you're trying to get anything serious done.
The battery life is very impressive.
Overall I recommend this product despite the problems I had with it. I knew what I was getting myself into in the first place and that lowered my expectations enough to be willing to shape this device into "my own." If you're up for a challenge, get it. I will offer an update in the following months describing the 8GB RAM upgrade.
November 11, 2014
ByAndy W - See all my reviewsDell Inspiron i3147-3750sLV 11.6-Inch 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop (Personal Computers)Hello! I got this little netbook/entry level ultra book to replace a full size laptop and a 7 inch android tablet. Just like many other users i felt that windows 8.1 is annoying (I love my windows phone), is a little under powered and the come of the components (touch pad, and chassis) on it doesn't feel as solid as it should feel. I also had the annoying problem of the rough touch pad being in consistent with me when I was trying to use it. After using the laptop for a day and with the intention of returning it I went to Costco, best buy, office depot and the Microsoft store to test out all the laptops on demo; but at the end of the day I have decided to keep this laptop even with all of those short coming and here is why.
(Some personal opinion with some market research)
First of all most of the laptops in this price range with similar configuration cost around the same as this laptop but none of these laptops (HP 2 in 1 that use the same processor, Lenovo again with the same process but with a non upgradable ram, and ASUS transformer) would offer the same upgradeability, size, power, screen quality and battery life as this laptop (so yes they are all kind of slow) It is true that I can get a full size laptop with a more powerful processor but again I got this laptop because of the size and that was a big deciding factor for me. In my opinion there are three other types of laptops that is available on the market with a similar size form and battery life as this laptop but with a huge upgrade in speed (mac books, ultra books, and chrome books) but here is why I didn't pick them over this laptop. The mac book and ultra books are beautiful, powerful and runs forever but the closest laptop that was just as slim was an hp ultra book priced at around $600 which I don't have a budget for. The chrome books are just beautiful, fast and smooth for just around $200 but as an engineering student and it would impossible for me to own a device where I can't run any engineering, MS word, PowerPoint and other windows program on. (if I was in a major that would just require word I would gladly use buy a chrome book.)
(Some ways around some common issue of this machine)
At this point I have come to terms with some of the limitations that I will have with this laptop (such as the over all speed, build quality, etc) but I did find some ways to go around some of the issue I encounter with this machine.
-I have found out that I can set the touch pressure, pointer speed and palm reject with a software included in the control panel under the mouse setting. I found that by setting the touch pressure to min, palm reject to max, and increase the point speed I was able to get the touch pad to behave like a normal touch pad.
-To make things a little quicker I remove McAfee anti virus from the computer. Windows 8.1 come standard with windows defender which have proven to be very simple to use and effective over the years.
-Ccleaner is a very great tool to have to free up some junk left over by the extra dell software and usually would restore some speed to the machine.
-There is no way around Windows 8.1 and it does feel a little clunky even coming from someone who has a windows phone. My suggest to that is that for the user to take your laptop (doesn't matter what make, model as long as is windows) to your local windows store to have their employees take you on a tour through windows 8.1.
At this point this is all I have to say about this laptop and I will update this review when I spend some more time on it. In case I didn't mention this before but the battery life on this thing is simply amazing which would easily make up for some extra time it takes to load a youtube video. I hope this review would give someone who is interested in this product or are thinking of returning this product a reason why they should buy it or keep it. Thanks for reading my review.
Update: (Replaced factory hard drive with SSD hard drive)
I decide to replace the factory hard drive with a solid state hard drive to increase the processing speed and battery life a little bit. Due to the limitation in the factory recovery software I was not able to just restore windows with a recovery SD card. I had to use a hard drive cloning software with a cable to complete the hard drive replacement. http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Laptop-Install-Kit-2-5/dp/B00C981DDY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1416009448&sr=8-1&keywords=crucial+kit
and this is the hard drive I got.
Fyi this laptop use a 7mm harddrive with no extra adaptors so you wont need to get the ssd installation kit with the bracket.
Update: Screen Calibration
I had an issue with the touch screen being unresponsive. The screen became a lot more responsive (almost perfect) after performing a screen calibration which can be found by typing "screen calibration" at the start screen.
Byride (Salt Lake City, Ut United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dell Inspiron i3147-3750sLV 11.6-Inch 2 in 1 Convertible Touchscreen Laptop (Personal Computers)I shopped for about a month before buying this machine, went to every office store multiple times and watched internet retailers like a hawk for a good deal. I finally decided to go with this Inspiron 3147 and I have no regrets. I like to use it as a tablet but I don't want to detach it from the keyboard, because you never know when you are going to want to flip it around to type anything longer than a couple sentences. This computer is very thin, elegant looking, like a higher end ultrabook from last year or the year before. The keyboard feels high quality. The battery lasts at least 6-7 hours. It is not the fastest laptop out there but at 2.3 ghz it's respectable. It only has 4 g of RAM but the machine itself tells me that the max is 8. You can buy a single stick 8 gig of DDR3 RAM here on Amazon for 72 bucks, which gives this little machine the power of a 1000 dollar laptop. For another 105 dollars you can throw in a 256 gig SSD harddrive and then you have a computer in competition with $1400 laptops, other than lacking an I-series processor. I plan to do both of these modifications. I also like that the battery is easily user-replaceable. I think the screen is not as precise with touch sensitivity as it could be if it was a Samsung or Apple device, but that's my only minor complaint. The USB 3.0 and HDMI ports are nice to have---these are not standard on all laptops in this price range. All in all I don't think there is anything better around right now for even 100-200 dollars more. It doesn't hurt that this is a sleek and elegant looking computer, as well.
