Dell has a $199 laptop, and it looks pretty

It’s easy to find a cheap laptop. But finding a good cheap laptop was hard

— at least until the $199 HP Stream 11 came along last year with its colorful plastic design, great battery life and decent creature comforts. Now, Dell has a colorful plastic budget laptop for $199 too, debuting here at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show. It’s called the Dell Inspiron 11 3000, and it looks like a worthy competitor.

Don’t expect much in the way of grunt: For $199 (or roughly £135 or AU$280, converted), you’re looking at a low-performance Intel Celeron processor, only 2GB of memory and 32GB of solid-state storage, and the older, slower 802.11n Wi-Fi standard for your wireless connectivity.

It also doesn’t have a backflipping touchscreen like the old $350 Dell Inspiron 11 3000, which could be a little confusing.
