Dell Company assures its user to the durability of the product.  Its keys and hinges were tested to withstand for longevity. The power buttons were tested for 40,000 presses before it was sold to the market.  And its keyboards was tested for 5 million clicks and the most amazing result is that the keys function without any single malfunctions. And what more, the Open and closed even twisted the laptop still work as normal the test was not only done hundredths or thousands, but it was tested for 10 thousand times.  I can attest to that claim.  Just this noon prior to making this review, I arrived coming from the very long trip, when I unload the baggage, unfortunately, the laptop was accidentally dropped hard to the concrete floor. But to my surprise, it was not broken. With my previous experience with another laptop, I also dropped that hard but the gadget was broken. The internal connectors of this gadget were also tested a dozen times from USB, AC to battery this, to ensure long-lasting performance and to replace its parts easily.

That is very simple, just visit your IT experts and ask them how to do these tricks.

Final Thoughts

I have a strong conviction of this laptop since this is my partner in blogging and reviews for so long, I don’t have much experience with high-end laptops, but if you have no enough budget? I can highly recommend you to have this for one.  It’s a great laptop, with the price of Dell Inspiron 15 3000 Series just $349.88 at Amazon with this price compared with other brands, Intel core i3? You can get the wrong gadget if you compared it to others.
