Dell Inspiron 15 3000
The Inspiron 15 3000’s design has an 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. It’s both lighter and thinner than other 15-inch laptops, including the HP Notebook 15 (15.1 x 10 x 1 inches, 6 pounds) and the Acer Aspire E 15 (10.2 x 1.5 x 1.2 inches, 5.06 pounds).
