Dell Inspiron 3800


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

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.
