      Perfect laptop for traveling and general use!


      Okay, so let me begin by saying i've had this laptop for exactly one month as of today. (I received it on the 16th of June.) I was really on the fence about buying this laptop because at the time I saw a whole bunch of negative reviews regarding it. But I went with my gut instinct and purchased it regardless. Anyways, one month in I can say I couldn't be happier with the purchase and I am super happy that I didn't let the negative reviews hold me back from acquiring this little guy! Okay look, i'll label some pros and cons. PROS: Compact Size - Its small size makes it perfect for travelling! Whether going from one state to the other or from one street to the other, its size never disappoints! You can store this little guy literally anywhere! Which is a major perk for me! Surprisingly Durable - When traveling a lot, there'll be times when your luggage gets tossed around. This thing has fallen once or twice and has definitely been handled roughly by bagging personnel, but despite this, not a SINGLE crack! On anywhere! Not even the screen and I don't even have a screen protector! The thing has survived the test of time! It still looks just as fabulous as it was when I first purchased it! Which is a SUPER plus ESPECIALLY if you travel a lot like me! It's actually fast for its price - Despite a sometimes slow startup, and slow running speeds for like the first 5 minutes or so after the little guy is booted up for the first time, thereafter the thing runs like a breeze! Originally when I purchased this laptop, I was going to use it for travelling. But since i've started using it more, due to the speed, it has now become my general use laptop for all purposes! Whether traveling or not! You'll see no complains from me on this little guy's speed! I love it! This is definitely my new laptop of choice! Plenty of room for its compact size - This thing is loaded by default with 27.5 GB internal memory. Compared to other similar sized computers i've had in the past, this thing vastly outnumbers them in terms of sheer memory! And unlike most other computers that get super slow when you run low on memory, that is NOT a problem with this computer! I have less than 2 GB of memory left on this computer from my last travelling adventure, but still this thing runs like a champ! Quality and speed has NOT been diminished even a little bit! It literally still runs just as fast as it was when I first purchased it! Which is a god send for me honestly since I often times keep my computers filled with work-related files! Battery Life - Though battery life varies depending on which mode you have this computer on, on average, even in hardcore performance mode, I can get at least 2 - 3 hours of this bad boy before needing a recharge. In battery saver mode, easily 4 - 5 hours. I prefer battery saver mode because with this guy, it is still just as fast regardless in either mode. And of course, I don't go blind in battery saver mode. Which is a nice touch. Recharge time - Even if you waste all 5 hours of battery life on power saving mode and your laptop dies, this thing gets back up to 100% charge regardless within two hours. (For me at least.) Long battery life and fast recharge times makes me a happy boy! No overheating - This laptop does a frighteningly well job at keeping itself cool! Despite how long you may have it going for! As well as despite which setting you may have it on when running! Whether power saving mode or all-out performance mode! Either or, and this thing will AT MAX only grow a LITTLE warm below! Don't ask me how it does it for I do not know! The only way i've figured out to get it a bit more heated was by literally burying it under layers of covers! Yet even then, it still didn't get that heated at all! Not bad! But unfortunately, this thing does also have one some cons, as no computer is perfect. So let's move onto that list, shall we? CONS: Screen size - This one should have been obvious. It is a tiny computer, thus for the most part it will be hard to see the screen unless you're squinting your eyes from afar or are within a comfortable length from it. For me, the ideal length where it doesn't hurt my eyes as much is on my lap. It sits relatively comfortably on my lap and I can still see the screen relatively clearly. Slightly uncomfortable to use - Given how it is so small, it does get uncomfortable at times. Even if you are sitting upright and using it on a desk. So as you might expect, an average adult with big hands will find this a bit uncomfortable no matter how they try to use it or where. However, on the bright side, this issue can be fixed relatively quickly. All it requires you to do is to adjust yourself slightly in your preferred positioning. Incapable of loading performance-draining programs/websites - This thing is no beast. If you plan on using this thing for say gaming, editing software, or emulation purposes, I recommend you go for a different computer altogether. I once tried playing a flash game on this computer and it couldn't even load that without lag. ...Yeah. This computer definitely seems to be made only for office-related programs. Sorry. But hey, on the bright side, at least this thing can still handle videos at 480p. (Not 720 and above.) So if you watch a lot of videos, at least this thing is still useful for that. Constant Windows Updates - A very prominent issue. Windows will keep trying to force its updates on this computer. But since each update is generally too large for the computer's memory, it just puts you in a never ending loop where it tries to force you to restart your computer for an update, is unable to install the update, then fails. Meaning that every time you try to restart/turn off the computer thereafter, it will try the update once more annoyingly enough. Thankfully, there is a fix. Believe it or not, you can actually shut down the computer's Windows Update command altogether. Meaning you won't get bothered by Windows Updates ever again. I am pretty sure I can't link it on here, but I recommend to anyone who plans on purchasing this computer in the future to look up guides on how to shut off Microsoft Update for good first thing once you have the computer in your possession. Trust me, it will save you much frustration later on down the line! Good luck! That concludes my review. Overall, despite its few faults, I still vote this computer 10/10! I would never replace this laptop for any other! I hope my review helps! Thank you for your time!

      Pretty good bargain

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      When purchasing this laptop, it is important to keep a few things in mind. This computer probably costs less than your smartphone and/or tablet, in fact, your sneakers might even cost a bit more - which means there are tradeoffs to make and trying to compare this computer to something that costs $200 more would be a mistake. For one, it is not the fastest of processors, it only has 4GB of RAM (which is 2GB more than most other systems around the same cost), and it only has a 32GB "hard drive" (it's really MMC). Yes, it is also made of plastic, it has no fancy OLED, it's not even a 1080p screen resolution (just 1366x768), and the screen does have an ugly bezel around it., we could probably assume that you are not buying this computer to play the latest games or to show off at the local coffee shop. So why buy this computer? Perhaps you're the type of person that only browses the web and checks email, or maybe you just want to play some basic games from the Windows App Store and watch YouTube videos, maybe you're buying for a senior citizen or a child in your family who's just getting started with computers, perhaps you just want a computer to tinker with and install a Linux distro, you just need something to keep connected to a 3D printer or a security camera, or maybe you travel and need something to view pictures or other documents on the go and don't feel like carrying your more powerful heavy laptop or risk the loss of your super expensive flagship laptop/tablet. In my case, I just needed something to run specific software a few times a month that could connect to an HDMI source, was portable, and I would not be super concerned if someone accidently breaks it or feels like borrowing it and never returning it (I call it stealing). So far, I am happy with how the computer runs, in fact, I was expecting something much slower and like the netbooks from a few years ago. This computer is a bit strange compared to other similar choices since it has an AMD A6 instead of an Intel Celeron (do not compare to an i3 - that's just a different category) and 4GB of RAM. The AMD processor clocks higher than the Intel, perhaps helping the system perform a bit better. The 4GB of RAM might sound better than the competing units that only have 2GB or RAM; however, the AMD processor needs about 50% more memory than the Intel counterpart. The AMD does include entry level Radeon R4 graphics, which is another plus over intel. Since the computer only has 32GB for storage, after uninstalling 2 pieces of McAfee software (get rid of it and just use Windows defender), installing Office 2016, and the software I needed, I'm only left with 4.12GB; but, that's not a problem since I stuck a 256GB Micro SD into it and have everything I need on there. Finally, there's battery life - if you need the battery life over performance, go with the Inspiron 11 that has the Celeron CPU. Battery life on this machine is about as bad as it was with the netbooks of the past, perhaps about 4-5 hours with the screen at half brightness and trying to get work done at the same time; which is bad considering my normal laptop gets about 9 hours doing the same thing. If you really dim it and aren't listening to audio or watching videos, you may be able to squeeze 9 hours or so out of the system; where most higher-end computers today may get about 12 hours or more. Performance wise, if you want something with more processing power and better graphics, get this model with an AMD processor; if you prefer better battery life, get the Intel Celeron model. In using the word "performance" I don't mean going from a scooter to a crotch rocket; but, depending on what you are doing it can make a difference. In some reviews people are complaining that the computer is slow right out of the box - that's because computers with these specs can't multitask so well and when you first open there's likely tons of updates to install from Microsoft and Dell. It's also probably trying to synch your OneDrive or Dropbox if you set those up when prompted (I would ignore the OneDrive/Dropbox prompts until the other updates are done and you format a micro-SD card). I let mines run for about 6 hours and checked it every 2 hours or so since it required restarts - and no, it won't take 6 hours to install the updates, it's just because I hate sitting and waiting and even went on a long hike with the dogs while the computer updated. Once those updates are 100% completed, the computer should boot-up in a matter of seconds, and apps like Word, Excel, and OneNote boot-up in about 6-8 seconds. The one bug I've encountered is when going into Settings - sometimes the app just stalls and doesn't fully open, just close it and restart it and it'll open quickly; a Microsoft or Dell update might fix this. Like I said, this computer won't make a fashion statement; but, it's not ugly and does not feel as cheap as similar models. If you just want a computer for basic tasks or a secondary computer that's not so powerful, this machine won't disappoint. The form factor is pretty awesome, and it would be cool if Dell ever considered making an 11" XPS or even Alienware model (granted, it would be a lot more $$).

      Fine but very basic laptop

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      The Inspiron 3180 is a well-designed basic laptop, well-suited for limited use (e-mail, internet, simple word processing and spreadsheets, watching YouTube or Netflix videos). It is not a desktop replacement or a laptop that will work well as for more intensive use, such as multitasking, graphics editing and so on. If you plan to use the computer for those purposes, then spend the money to get a Dell Inspiron 5000 series laptop, where you will get an i3 or i5 processor, 8gb of RAM, and a larger hard drive. I purchased two 3180's in the last month. I purchased the first to donate to a railroad museum where I volunteer, and set it up as a single-purpose weather radar laptop for use in the conductor's station. As I was setting it up for that purpose, I realized that the 3180 configuration (AMD A6-9220e CPU, Radeon R4 GPU, 4gb RAM) was a remarkably good setup for this class of computer (most configurations in this class use an Intel Celeron, Intel HD graphics and 2gb RAM), so I bought a second 3180 as a personal computer to use at the museum to maintain the museum's network, get my e-mail, check the weather, do internet searches, and store/read/review the museum's computer/network documentation as needed. The 3180 is not fancy. It does not have a lighted keyboard or other bells and whistles that I am used to in my main laptop, a Dell Latitude 7280, and it took some adjusting to get comfortble with it. The processor is not up to serious multitasking, although it will handle having 3-4 browser windows open at the same time without any performance issues. It has minimal (maybe subminimal) HD capacity at 32gb, so I added a 16gb microSD card to store documents and other data on my personal one. I get 4-5 hours of battery life, which is nothing to write home about. But it is solidly built and doesn't have the "cheap" feel of other brands I looked at in this price range, and it is more than adequate for light use. In short, if you realistic about the limitations of laptops in this price range, and plan to use it for light duty, you won't be disappointed with the 3180. A few of recommendations: (1) Cut down the startup items (Task Manager, Startup) to the bare minimum you can live with. This will improve boot time (mine typically go from button to sign-in screen in about 30 seconds) and cut down the load on the processor, allowing the laptop to operate more efficiently. (2) Adjust Windows 10 visual effects for "best performance" (Control Panel, System and Security, System, Advanced Settings, Performance Options, Visual Effects). This will eliminate Windows 10 animations, shadows and so on, but significantly increase the 3180's performance. (3) Go though the Windows 10 Settings menus and eliminate anything you won't be using. Everything you eliminate will cut down on processor load. (4) Go through the Start menu and uninstall as much bloatware as you can (Don't plan on playing "Candy Crush"? Get rid of it.) Every app you eliminate will cut down on processor load. A note to Linux users: I've seen a few comments to the effect that the R4 graphics don't play well with a number of Linux distros. I installed a number of different distros (Lubuntu, Zorin OS Core and a couple others) on my personal 3180 for testing before doing a clean Windows 10 install, and I had the same issues (hesitations during boot, screen flicker, and so on) that have been reported by others. It may be that this will straighten out in time as Linux distros provide better support for the A9/R4 combination, but right now I would be cautious about purchasing a 3180 planning to wipe Windows and install Linux. Overall, I think that the 3180 is fine but very basic laptop. I recommend it, with the caveat that this is a basic computer designed for light use. It you understand what you are getting, you won't be disappointed.

      Great Laptop Perfect Size

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      Let me start off by saying that this laptop has McAfee installed, other reviews mentioned it has nothing, that is not true. Once you let it download all of the updates and what not, you end up with at least 10GB of memory. Now that's not a lot of storage space obviously, but you can put either an Micro SD card or you can use a 3.0 USB stick to expand the storage. I have a 64GB Micro SD in mine, and decided to see if it can run cuphead. I downloaded it to the SD card and Cuphead actually runs pretty good. I even synced my XB1 controller via Bluetooth for the controls. Now as for the speed, I will admit that the speed during my first use was slow, but that is understandable since it was installing tons of software, and since everyone seems to have no patience and can't wait and just judge the laptop saying it's slow, just give it a few hours, finish installing everything, turn off Cortona, uninstall apps that you don't want, and this laptop is actually pretty good. I have a windows tablet with 2GB ram and a Celeron CPU, this Laptop blows that out of the water in literally every single way. It boots up pretty quick, the build quality is excellent, and the design is very slim. This laptop has 4gb of ram installed and a AMD A6 dual core Max 2.9 GHZ with a Radeon R4 which is a heck of a lot better than a Celeron and Intel HD graphics you find in most of these small notebooks and 2 in 1's. It is definitely much faster than any of those. Battery life has been excellent, you can change settings to excel in battery life, or excel in performance. Negatives for me would be the lack of a wireless AC network card, but I ordered a USB adapter from Amazon, no biggie. Another negative would be the lack of storage and lack of ability to open up the laptop and add additional storage. Best Buy says the ram is expandable, but this may or may not be true. One person who reviewed this said it's not, but I will try and contact Dell about this. Overall, if you plan on buying a laptop for media use, YouTube, web, emails, even some light casual gaming ie Roblox, Minecraft, plus the speakers are decent and with built in Bluetooth this laptop is an excellent mobile companion. For $150 you can't beat this laptop unless you purchase a refurbished or used i3 or i5 from eBay, and good luck with that.

      Let it update then its great.


      First theres alot of negative reviews about this being slow, and yes once you take it out of the box it is PAINFULLY slow but thats because this dual core is getting used up 100% getting updates. After I let this fully update it was reasonably quick and responsive. Im going to compare this to the hp stream 11 with the n3060 celeron and the insignia tablet with a z8350 quad core since they are in the same price range and I have used both. If you use this for browsing then youre going to prefer this over those, i would get a score of 18 at browserbench with the hp and 20 with the z8350 insignia tablet. This laptop gets you 45. For comparison my dell 7757 gaming laptop with a core i5 7300hq gets a score of 120. If you're going to be browsing sites and loading up youtube its not going to be slow as the other things in this price range. Gaming This is not a gaming laptop but the reason this got my interest is because I had a gaming laptop back in 2008/9 with a core 2 duo p7450 and an nvidia 9800m gs. The 9220e is slightly better than the core 2 duo and the integrated r4 graphics are about the same as the 9800m gs.Both have 4gb ram This means that if you wanted to play some old games from the ps3 era you will absolutely be able to as long as you can put them on an sd card or some kind of external storage. I played old games like FF13 and even newer less demanding games like cuphead with no issues . Unlike gaming laptops this apu doesnt eat alot of power so i was able to game unplugged for 3 hours. Battery life This is where this shines imo. at 100% brightness browsing websites I get 7 hours of use off a full charge and it charges completely in 2 hours. If I dim the screen I can get about 10 hours of battery. Cons TN panel, The screen isnt that good and im only listing it as a con since the insigina tablet was equipped with an IPS panel . No AC wireless, you cant connect to 5ghz dual band networks only the 2g frequency which results in laggier connections and you cant really stream your desktop to this if you wanted to. 32gb emmc, this is too low to install the updates so it kinda forces you to use a usb stick or an sd card along with this. Bottom line is if you need a portable laptop and are willing to buy an sd card its definitely worth the purchase.

      Excellent Laptop!

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      I have been researching laptops for about a month (around $200 range) prior to making my decision, so hopefully my feedback will help someone in a similar position. First and foremost, this laptop is NOT for hardcore gaming or extreme multitasking. If this is your expectation, you will be sorely disappointed. Rather, this laptop is geared for someone looking for basic functionality (i.e. basic word processing / basic web surfing / watching videos) and does a great job at handling these tasks. Is it blazing fast? No. However, I have not encountered any issues with utilizing this laptop in terms of speed. As I write this, I have Microsoft Word open, along with 11 Google Chrome tabs and my desktop email - experiencing zero speed issues. Yes, the memory is low at 4GB and the storage is low at 32GB (I have about 10GB remaining after ALL updates have completed). Regarding the storage, this is easily remedied by a Micro SD card or USB stick. Additionally, you can utilize cloud storage to free up some space. Again though, this laptop is not intended to be a primary computer unless you are only interested in extremely basic functionality. For me, it works great because I have a regular laptop that I use as a "desktop" and if I need to do more resource intensive tasks, I will use my regular laptop instead. However, if, like me, you looking for something extremely portable, you are a student in need of a low cost laptop or prefer not using Chrome OS, I would highly recommend this laptop. As an added bonus, it does come with a free year of Office 365, which is a pretty nice value, especially since you can get all of this (currently) for approx. $160 after tax. Point being - don't expect this thing to be something that it is not. Do your research and know what you are buying before actually buying it.

      Poorly made netbook, nothing more


      I was sent this model as a gift less than three weeks ago from a friend. From the beginning the startup stated there was a problem with the drive--it did some sort of scan to try to fix it; but it didn't. Second, this comes loaded WITHOUT enough memory to download the updates waiting for it. Right off the bat you need at least 20 gigs that aren't there. At purchase you MUST buy a micro sd card or don't bother trying. The L hinges broke (yeah, they did rivets-sheared off) less than a week after I got it. I took it back yesterday and exchanged it for a new one. This one is shutting down (just going black screen, and to get it to turn back on you have to close it, let it set a minute or two and then start it up again). So far today it's done it 6 times in less than two hours. This computer is so slow that you'll get to be nostalgic and feel all the aggravation of once again having dial up. It does NOT run smooth and gets bogged down by the tiniest thing (Mcafee, two windows open). It's the most aggravating computer I've ever owned. It runs worse than my cheap $50 tablet from China that I use as an e reader. Since it was a gift I'm going to do my second exchange today and hope I get one that isn't defective. I'm not holding my breath. My advice is to just save yourself the hassle and buy something better made by someone else. My last computer was a dell i7 core-much more expensive, 16", but the same sloppy, defective workmanship. I've always owned dells, but never again. They don't make quality products anymore. There is absolutely no reason to release a computer made so cheaply that they can't work properly. My replacement I picked up yesterday also had the 'error' at initial startup. It did the scan and repaired it, though. I'm guessing that error had nothing to do with why it suddenly goes dead and does a hard shut down. Imagine being able to buy a product, take it home, set it up, and use it. DON'T COUNT ON IT WITH THIS MODEL. I already despise this thing. If it hadn't been a gift I'd return it for something else. Run far in the other direction, or if you MUST have a dell go with the intel version. It may work better. Or not.

        It sounds like a very frustrating experience that you've had with your new laptop. We're sorry that the storage on your new computer was not sufficient for your setup. If you are having trouble with the storage on your computer we'd recommend looking through the pre-installed programs on your computer to make sure that you plan to use all of them. If you'd like to uninstall anything you can follow these steps: Uninstalling or removing software or applications that you do not use or do not need from your PC can help speed up your PC. Applications may include background processes, system services, context menu entries and other things that can slow down your PC.

        Uninstall applications you no longer need using Programs and Features (previously called Add/Remove Programs). Unnecessary applications occupy space on your hard disk drive.

        1. Press the Windows logo key + R on the keyboard.
        2. In the Run dialog box, type appwiz.cpl and press the Enter key.
        3. In the list, select a program and click Uninstall.

      I own a computer repair shop. I tell the vast majority of my customers not to buy this laptop. This laptop is non-upgradable, has a "slow" processor, and has a very small solid-state hard drive. You can't store much on them, they can't handle really heavy applications, the screen is small...and I own two of them. Why would a computer repair shop owner who tells most of his customers to avoid this computer have two himself, and give it five stars on top of that? It's simple: if you buy one of these with an understanding of what they are and reasonable expectations about how they'll perform, you'll be very happy with them. These computers are best suited to users that will only use a browser and an office suite most of the time, though they can do much more, albeit slowly at times. I use one to do all my retail tasks through a web interface and I am very happy with it. These machines are also perfect "burners" for taking on the go and not caring if an unfortunate event damages the computer. You can do sound recording and even fairly decent live streaming and podcast creation with this laptop. They're a lot more capable than they seem, but it is important to remember that they're some of the slowest, lowest-spec brand new laptops available and set your expectations and patience accordingly. Some performance tips for after you get the computer: You will need to uninstall as much of the factory-installed stuff as possible when you get the computer because it comes with very little available space. You will also need a large USB storage device to install "feature updates" (which are really major upgrades) to Windows 10 down the line. Once you've updated everything with an external drive and tossed all of the factory junk that you can, you'll want to run an administrative command prompt and type two commands: "cleanmgr" and "compact /compactos:always" which will let you run a system-wide Disk Cleanup and compress system files to take up almost 1/2 the space they currently do. After all of this, you may have over 10GB of storage available!
