Dell Inspiron 11 3000: A 2-in-1 For The Masses

General Performance Testing
 Based on Maxon Cinema 4D software, this test uses a 3D scene and polygon and texture manipulation to assess GPU and CPU performance. The Main Processor Performance (CPU) test builds a still scene containing about 2,000 objects for a total polygon count above 300,000. The Graphics Card Performance (OpenGL) scene uses nearly 1 million polygons and various lighting and environment scenarios to measure graphics performance. Cinebench displays results for the CPU test in points and the OpenGL (GPU) test in frames per second. 

We tested the Dell Inspiron 11 3147 on both Cinebench version R11.5, for which we have plenty of comparison data, and the new version R15. Dell's convertible is clearly outgunned here, but one look at the processors and graphics of the other laptops makes it clear that they have more powerful hardware. Again, this is a budget machine, so these sorts of performance results are expected.
