At first glance the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 is rather boring, a Core i3-8130U, a single 8GB stick of DDR4-2800, a 1TB drive and a 1366×768 15.6" display as standard equipment. TechPowerUp made one simple change to the standard model, upgrading to a 250GB Silicon Power Ace A55 SSD, taking the price from $337.59 to $375.79 with tax included. Now, for a very low price you have a laptop which will meet the needs of many casual users, including those still used to optical media as it sports a DVD drive.
If you know someone who doesn't ask for much out of a laptop and could use a newer machine, this is defintitely something to consider.
"Dell's Insprion 15 3000 is an entry-level notebook that remains not only highly affordable after a quick upgrade to an SSD, but feels quick and responsive. Take that into account, along with the surprisingly good battery life, and you have a decent system for on-the-go that won't break the bank."
