Discreet with its thin and light black design, the cheap Dell Inspiron 15 3511-433 laptop with 15-inch Full HD anti-glare display benefits from a responsiveness enhanced by its fast 512GB SSD storage. This Windows 11 Ultrabook performs well in everyday use and modest gaming thanks to its 8GB of RAM and its Quad Core i5 Tiger Lake processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics module. But it lacks USB-C connectivity.
Performance, battery life of this Dell Inspiron 15 3511
The Dell Inspiron 15 3511 is a thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday multipurpose use.
The overall performance it provides is suitable for many users. It is supported by 8 GB of RAM and a low-power Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor.
In addition, the latter houses the Iris Xe, a graphics module that we have tested, thanks to which we can watch photos and videos but also play modest games.
The storage is entrusted to a 512GB SSD, a capacity in line with the standard hard drives.
However, if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB 3.0 device to obtain fast transfers.
The fact remains that an SSD offers several advantages compared to a simple hard disk drive, such as greater robustness, lower power consumption, silent operation and greater speed.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, start/stop operations are much faster, as well as the launching of applications and treatments, and you can get to the online game maps faster.
More generally, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity than a hard disk.
As for the autonomy, bet on approximately 7 hours of operation on battery in light use for this Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by the thinness and the contained weight.

Chassis, connectors, screen of this Dell Inspiron 15 3511
With its thin and light Carbon Black design, this versatile laptop has a discreet look.
This Ultrabook has a good connectivity with its HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or a monitor for example, its wireless Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 5.0 modules for remote connections and communications, its Ethernet and audio ports without forgetting its 3 USBs, all of them compatible with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, USB 3.0 guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 peripherals are plugged in.
It’s a shame, however, that it doesn’t include USB-C.
The screen will be of interest to video lovers and more broadly to High Definition content. Because it is adorned with a 16/9 format coupled with a precise Full HD definition. Thanks to its anti-reflection treatment, the screen is also more readable in bright environments (eg outdoor) than a glossy slab.
