The 1.4 GHz 15.6" Inspiron 15 3000 Series Notebook from Dell is powered by a 1.4 GHz Intel Celeron 2957U dual-core processor that allows you to run multiple applications simultaneously. The system's 4GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs, as well as help to ensure efficient multitasking. The memory may also be upgraded to 8GB.

The 15.6" TrueLife display features an HD 1366 x 768 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. This is also the standard for HDTVs and the system's screen resolution allows for native 720p high-definition video playback with minimal upscaling. The integrated Intel HD Graphics delivers a sharp, clear picture and you'll also be able to output video to an external display using the built-in HDMI 1.4a port. As this display features TrueLife technology, it has a 10% higher contrast ratio than the same display with an anti-glare coating.

For connecting to the Internet this notebook is equipped with 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet and 802.11n Wi-Fi. External peripherals, such as additional storage, optical drivers, printers, and more may be connected using the 1 x USB 3.0 port and 2 x USB 2.0 ports. Additional compatible peripherals, such as keyboards, mice, and headsets may be paired using Bluetooth 4.0 technology.

For long term storage of your files, the Inspiron 15 features a 500GB 5400 rpm SATA hard drive. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the dual integrated stereo speakers feature MaxxAudio and offer high quality sound. There is also an built-in 720p webcam and microphone that allow you to engage in face-to-face conversations using Skype or other software, as well as a 3-in-1 media card reader that supports SD, SDHC, and SDXC cards.

The 15.6" Inspiron 15 3000 Notebook includes a 4-cell / 40Wh Lithium-ion battery that lasts for up to 6.3 hours before recharging is required, as well as an AC adapter. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

Windows 10 Home

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With it, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift
