Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB

60% Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB
Source: PC Mag English
Stylish though the Dell Inspiron 14R-1181MRB may be, it has a lot of trouble living up to its appearance. It's outclassed by every other similarly priced laptop we've looked recently at in terms of performance, right on down from the Editors' Choice Asus U41JF-A1. Laptops like the Asus U41JF-A1 and the Samsung QX410-J01 have slightly higher prices, respectively, but unless your needs really don't go beyond the basics, they will give you a lot more capabilities for your coin.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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.
