As much as we obsess about the latest and hottest hardware, we sometimes like to take a look at a value system to see what kind of bang you can get for your buck on a tight budget. And with the school year just getting underway, the Dell Inspiron 11 3147 caught our eye as a possible candidate for a highly mobile classmate or conference room colleague. It’s a light, tiny laptop with a screen that folds completely back so you can use the device as a tablet whenever it suits your needs.

To a budget-minded student who wants a versatile laptop (and that won’t feel like brick in his or her backpack), the Inspiron 11 3000 series 2-in-1 convertible could be a win. We took the system for a spin to see if it should be headed back to school with you this year.

That's a cool little machine for not a lot of scratch and 1366x768 is just fine for an 11-inch screen.

I'd be interested in seeing how the Celeron 2955U Haswell-based version in the other DELL Inspiron 11 3137 compares to this Bay-Trail version

It's not a Bay Trail processor on board this device, Drew. It's a quad-core Pentium N, which is a fairly new low power Intel Core derivative.

Interested in this. Anyone got it running on either any Debian Sid based or Arch distros? Can you please your experience if any?

The Pentium N3530 is very much a Bay Trail-M, simply one of the highest end ones... Bay Trail-M covers product from Atom, Celeron and Pentium. Trust me, I work in technical marketing at Intel.

That is a lighter option. Better than my Nook, without the price of a laptop.

The i3 is a bit more but probably worth the extra performance.
