Reviews for the Dell Inspiron 14R-5421

60% Dell Inspiron 14R
Source: Laptop Mag English
Ho-hum. The $649 Dell Inspiron 14R certainly has the right amount of endurance we want in a touch-screen notebook. The nearly 9-hour battery life is sure to be a hit with mainstream users and students that regularly burn the midnight oil. However, the design is a little chunky for a 14-inch laptop, and the keyboard is somewhat mushy.
