If you’re looking for dirt-cheap Windows 10 laptops, many will be available this holiday season, but don’t expect superior hardware.
Dell appears to be the first major PC maker making a move in the holiday price wars. In the U.S., the company will sell its Inspiron 11 3000 for $99.99, starting at 6:00 p.m. ET on Nov. 24. It’ll be available in limited quantities, and the price will go back up to $199.99 after the sale period ends.
The Inspiron 11 3000 has an Intel Celeron processor, Windows 10 Home, 2GB memory and 32GB storage. It also has an 11.6-inch 720p display, which is being phased out of laptops.
The Dell laptop won’t be able to store many large data or video files, so it could be used for basic computing and web-based tasks. It is configured much like a Chromebook, which is targeted for people who surf the internet, use online services and store files online.
