70% Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series notebook PC is an adequate computer but it’s expensive when you consider the $700 price tag. This notebook has enough muscle to get the job done, but things like poor Wi-Fi reception really don’t help matters. Although the 14-inch touch screen was a nice feature, notebooks with smaller, higher resolution displays can out perform it and provide better mobility.

60% Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series review: An attractive middle-of-the-road 14-inch laptop
Source: PC World English
The Inspiron 14 5447 is a generally capable all-purpose laptop with top-shelf styling at an affordable price. But there’s a distinct lack of options to make it faster (SSD and gigabit ethernet, for starters) or even less expensive (via a non-touch display), so its good looks wind up being a bit of a tease. Perhaps I’m being too being picky. This is good laptop that’s worthy of perusal if you’re shopping the middle of the road.

With a better screen and longer battery life, the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 would be a much stronger contender among 14-inch laptops. We like the attractive design, comfy keyboard and loud speakers, but you're simply not getting enough for your $749. For $799, the Lenovo IdeaPad Y40 sports a sharper 1920 x 1080 display, Intel Core-I7 CPU and an AMD Radeon R9 M270 graphics card.

All in all, the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series represents a solid and dependable value in a home or student laptop. We like its clean design, above-average build quality, good overall performance and battery life, touch screen, and backlit keyboard. On the downside, the low 1,366x768 screen resolution left us wanting more clarity, and the Inspiron is a bit on the heavy side for a 14-inch notebook.

Comment

Model:

The Dell Inspiron 14 5000 series is aimed towards budget conscious consumers who want some power. There are a few different configurations starting from a 4th generation Intel Core i3 processor to a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor will come paired with 8 GB of RAM and a 1 TB hard drive. While the lack of an SSD helps to lower the cost significantly, it does hold it back a little bit. The processor and RAM however is good enough to handle multiple 1080p movies streaming while having some tabs open in your Internet browser. The Intel HD Graphics 4400 is good enough for less demanding games and simple photo-editing.

The 14-inch touchscreen has a 1366 x 768 resolution which is underwhelming. The standard screen does not have good contrast and sharp colors. The laptop weighs 2.16 kg (4.8lbs) with touchscreen but you need to bring the charger around for this model increasing the weight. The 3 cell battery only gives below average battery life, roughly around 5-6 hours of mixed use.

While the performance is pretty solid for the higher configurations, you can use that money to get more from other devices. It's a little difficult to recommend higher configurations of the Inspiron 14.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display.

2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
