Equipped With a Celeron Processor
It is difficult to compare processor specs, since processor performance relies largely on the applications that are being run, as well as the quality of other parts in the computer. Below is a general overview of what to look for when researching processors:
Speed: The Intel Celeron N3050 inside this laptop is about average for processors in the Celeron family. With Intel's Turbo Boost technology, the processor speed can automatically increase by 0.56 GHz in situations where the computer needs the extra processing power.
Cores: This laptop has a dual-core processor, meaning that it can devote power to multiple applications, but may not multi-task as well as a processor with more cores.
Cache: This CPU's 2MB cache is slightly smaller than most modern processor caches.
Plenty of Use Time
The Inspiron 11 3162 (I3162-0000BLU) has 9 hours of battery life. This laptop has a decent battery life, which makes it good for travel along with its small display size. Under normal use (e.g. web browsing, typical office applications such as Word or Excel), it will be able to go most of the day without having to be plugged in.
