Dell Inspiron 3000 and 5000 offer style, affordability, performance, and flip-back displays

Two new Dell notebooks students, young professionals, and families should consider – the 11-inch Inspiron 3000 (ultra-portable, comes in fun colors, has a long battery life, priced at P23,790) and the 13.3-inch Inspiron 5000 (full HD display, SSD speeds, up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, has a backlit comfy keyboard, starts at P46,190). Both notebooks, available starting August 2016, offer touch displays that flip all the way back, for both glare-reduction when used outdoors and for access to tablet mode.
