Dell Inspiron 3800

 

Well-designed budget notebook has a chameleon-like personality and lots of value.

SOHO users and students who don't need a huge hard drive or screen will like the Inspiron 3800, with its attractive case colors, choice of add-in devices, and all-around good performance. Just add a modem, and it's ready to go.

The Dell machine offers a good keyboard, good battery life and plenty of power and features for an attractive price. The only downside is the construction of the case, which we'd like to see toughened up a bit.
